Grape Vine Story Fest

Why would Jim and I head into the Virginia countryside on a Saturday morning? For storytelling ofcourse. Jim took this picture of me to mark the occasion - the first ever Grape Vine Story Fest and for the record for the IRS.

Saturday June 16 the sun was bright, the weather

weather clear, birds were chirping in the trees, frogs singing in the pond, and people gathering - a perfect day for storytelling at Grayhaven Winery, Gum Spring, Virginia.

Organizers and tellers arrived early for the FIRST GrapeVine Storyfest - a new storytelling festival sponsored by the Virgina Storytelling Alliance. (VASA)

VASA president, Storyteller Megan Hicks welcomed everyone and then opened the program.

Great line-up of storytellers for the two day Story Fest:

Denise Bennett (VA), Willa Brigham (NC), Ralph Chatham (VA), Margaret Chatham (VA), Lorna Czarnota (NY), Gypsy Moon Tellers (VA), Lisa Hollingsworth (VA), Judith Onesty (VA), Lynn Ruehlmann (VA), Ellouise Schoettler (MD), Tales in Tandem (VA), Kim Weitkamp (VA), Donna Will (VA).

I was glad to be one of the tellers for the Saturday. I had a great time, telling my stories, meeting the other tellers, and spending a day in the country.
