  ~ February 6 ~  .  FEATURED TELLER: ANN ESTILL 


Image may contain: 1 person So many things to celebrate and remember:

It's Black History month, it's the month of LOVE and, to top it off, Chinese New Year - our stories will honour all three. 

Our featured teller, Ann estill, brings us, "Love is in the Air." Ann is a popular, regular storyteller at Tea "N" Tales, the summer Friday mornings in the  Enabling Garden. The audience at the Civic Museum are bound to be similarly charmed by Ann's stories.

 Guild members stories will reflect the other two. There will even be a Dragon Dance to drive out evil and bring good luck.
