Help Us Honor Those Affected by the Pandemic

How has covid-19 affected your family? Is there any one you would like to thank for their help? Is there anyone you would like to remember?

We would like to recognize front line workers, medical personnel, teachers, and those who have given so much. We want to honor the memories of friends, family, and loved ones.

Please share the names and any messages you may have as a way we can collectively honor these people at the Storytelling Festival. Go to

We will share a slide with all the names on Saturday after the storytelling concert from 10:45-noon called “Stories of Hardship and Hope in the Heart of the Pandemic” Our tellers are Ann Marie Newman , Sophie Holder, Hank Roubicek, Sarah Hill, and Dr. Susan R. Bailey
Emcee: MaryAnn Blue
