A Note from the President

Hello to everyone,


2021 is off to a great start for storytelling. River and Prairie Storyweavers celebrated January with another Chicken Festival. MO-TELL held its very first virtual Annual Membership meeting on January 16 th during the Chicken Festival. Gateway Storytellers held a big membership meeting on January 24.


MO-TELL wants to thank River and Prairie Storyweavers so much for their generosity. This is the third year we have piggy-backed on to their event. 23 people came and many people joined or renewed their memberships.Each of the board members gave a report.


Many storytelling events are coming up in February. We are looking forward to a MO-TELL Valentine’s event “What’s Love Got to Do with It?”on February 12. NSN has a LUUV event with international storytellers on February 6. River and Prairie Storyweavers have an evening of stories of Hope and Healing on February 27. Gateway Storytellers is beginning a series of workshops on February 16. So many more storytelling events are happening all over the world. Watch your inbox for more updates.


There have been requests for Bicentennial programs across the state. If you have any, please let us know about them.


January brought sad news to our storytelling family. Deb Wallen passed away on January 18. Condolences may be sent to Jim Two Crows Wallen at 4710 Mayview Terr. Ct., Blue Springs, MO 64015.


Keep telling stories and I hope to see you soon.
