Around Town Tellers
Stories on Friday happens on the
second Friday of the month from September to June.
Go to our "Stories on Friday" page for more information.
The Around Town Tellers (ATT) and
the Mid-Island StoryTellers (MIST)
invite our tellers and listeners to join the
"Help StorySave and Help Win the Quilt!" Fundraiser.
Donations must be received by June 30, 2020, at midnight.
Tax receipts for your charitable donation will be provided.
Each year a stunning, one-of-a-kind quilt is lovingly crafted by
Storytellers and Story listeners from across Canada.
This beautiful quilt has traditionally been used at the
Annual Storytellers of Canada Conference
to raise money for StorySave.
The StorySave program has been going for 25 years
and saves the stories of one amazing teller each year
so their stories stay alive in Canada forever.
Because the 2020 Conference was cancelled due to COVID-19,
the quilt is being used as an on-line fundraiser.
The person or team who raises the most funds wins the quilt.
AROUND TOWN TELLERS and MID-ISLAND STORYTELLERS
WOULD LOVE TO WIN THE QUILT
AND BRING IT TO NANAIMO/PARKSVILLE.
For every $10 you donate, we will put your name in the draw.
YOU CAN WIN A ONE-OF-A-KIND QUILT.
There will also be additional prizes of tickets to Around Town Teller
and Mid-Island StoryTeller events.
Help keep the StorySave project alive.

Please join in for some fun, friendly competition for a great cause.
The Storytellers of Canada Conference 2020 to be held in Parksville at the end of May was cancelled.
If the world returns to normal in 2021, Conference 2021 will be held in Parksville during the last week of May 2021.
Thank you to the organizing teams who have agreed to stay in place for next year.
