A Note from the President

Hello everyone,

Halloween was so different this year. Usually I am out telling stories in parks and libraries. I am still telling lots of stories for all seasons, but currently all online. We are all adapting, aren't we? We cannot do without our stories. They are necessary to get us through this difficult time. So keep telling all kinds of tales: the scary ones, the funny ones, and even the challenging ones. We need them all.

I hope you don't get tired of the stories on zoom and Streamyard and YouTube. They are holding us together.

Tellabration! A Night of Stories for Adults, is coming up. Who knows, your favorite teller may be telling your favorite tale.

We have a program in December for families. for Winter. What is your favorite memory of winter? Could you tell that tale?

In January, we will meet on Zoom for a membership meeting. What do you want to ask us? What is important about storytelling and MO-TELL? Let us know.

February is the time for hearts and flowers. We have stories about love. Come and listen and remember your loves.

Stories bring us closer. Come join us.

Oh, by the way, Happy Thanksgiving! I am so thankful for all of you.

Tell me the facts and I’ll learn. Tell me the truth and I’ll believe. But tell me a story and it will live in my heart forever.”
– Native American Proverb
