A Note from the President

Hello my friends,


In a little over a month, MO-TELL will sponsor its ninth liars contest. It will be held in St. Louis for the second year in a row, thanks to our board members Perrin Stifel, Jackie Wright and Sue Hinkel. I helped a little. It is open to the public and you can listen for free but if you want to attend the workshop or lunch or both, you will need to register at least a day in advance. That will help in our planning. If you want to enter the contest, you still have time. The deadline has been extended to June 10, 2023. Thank you.


Some of you know that St. Louis is the birthplace of MO-TELL. It is great to have an in-person event there. Our history is so important to us, and we want to share it with all of you. In this newsletter we begin our tale. If you have a memory of MO- TELL, please contact us at joyceslater20@gmail.com . It takes a village you know. Think about what MO-TELL has meant to you and share it with us. Tell us your tale.


Love to you all,

Joyce Slater

President of MO-TELL
