A Note from the President

Hello my friends,


We begin a brand-new year, with 365 days of sunrises and sunsets, 365 days of tasting new foods, of making new friends and remembering our old friends and of telling our stories. It gives us hope, doesn’t it? It gives me hope. 2021 has been a rough year for all of us. We have been separated from the people we love. There have been ups and downs of all sorts and learning new ins and outs of working and connecting. We have made new friends and we have lost some very dear friends. How lucky we are to be storytellers!


There have been tales of happiness, sadness and courage, some with laughter and others with tears.


MO-TELL has brought us together with concerts online and in the Missouri State Parks. We have stayed connected through the monthly newsletter and internet shout outs about other events put on by many organizations around the country and around the world.


I am anxious to step into 2022. Let us do it together. See you at the Annual Meeting this month during the River and Prairie Storyweavers' Chicken Festival. January 15, 2022, 5 pm on Zoom. Registration will be on the flyer.


See you there.


Happy New Year!


As always,

Joyce Slater

President of MO-TELL
