On Wednesday, June 2, 2021, the Tales From the Hill season was closed with a two-hour event. It was a charming evening.  Such a rich eclectic array of stories  - - -  folktales that prompted listeners to suspend belief as only a story can do, stories of family, memories, and mystery. 
We welcomed celebrated tellers: Susan Boucaud, Jean Bubba, Elizabeth Matson, and June Brown. In addition, our own members Don Conibear, Brian Holstein, Rusty Dougherty, and Jenny Q charmed us.

Each month it was wonderful to welcome listeners and tellers from far and wide.  Not to be trite, but the silver lining applies to the virtual world was evident.  How, else but virtually, could we meet friends from Texas, Wisconsin, Australia, across the country, and more.

Now we welcome the summer event - every Friday morning at 10:30 EDT. Click here.

Messages from listeners and guest tellers:

 I'm so glad I got to hear your story Sya! As always, it was a special tale and you told it so beautifully.
  • Thank you!

  •  Brian always seems to come up with something new and different that tickles the funny bone, touch the heart and gives us a glimpse into life in Australia as it used to be.

  • Hello Sya,
    Just want to thank you for extending an invitation to Villagers to attend the telling last evening.   I enjoyed it very much!   Don's story about the Burghers of Calais picked me, and I’ve now repeated it to my son, an illustrator, who knows more about art than I do, and who will be very interested in the story I’m sure.    I don’t see myself as a storyteller, but I sure like to hear a good story so that was a great pleasure for me, and I am grateful!  🤓

  •   Sya, I just love the way you tell, the honesty in your voice, and your choice of stories- you are awesome!. This week I found a link on Facebook to the Guelph Guild of storytellers and I was able to listen to you on YouTube. I was truly elated.
