STORYTELLING FOR ALL! Everyone who enjoys sharing stories, songs, poems, and good conversation is invited to come to The Scandinavian Community Centre, 6540 Thomas St. in Burnaby, on Sunday, January 21st, 2007. The gathering will be from
12 noon to 2pm or so. Light snacks will be served.
This is the first meeting of a Storytelling group, which hopes to get together several times throughout the year. Our aim is to share and exchange folklore, fairytales, stories of our heritage and ancestors, poetry, and music. We also hope to explore
story writing, events for young people, and maybe even some dramatic efforts! Of course we will offer many tales from Scandinavian lands, but we also will include the richness of all cultures.
So if this sounds good to you, don’t be shy! Come to tell a story or hear a story, read a poem you love, sing a song, or play an instrument; come to listen, make friends and enjoy good company. Don’t worry, this is not about being professional, this is about
gathering and sharing in an atmosphere of warmth and encouragement. We will sit as friends together at the kitchen table of Life, and gently share some treasures.
