“The evening will be a celebration of life, community and the arts,” said organizers of the event. “This is our 23rd year of offering original stories, traditional tales, jokes, folk and contemporary poetry, and dynamic live music from around the world. This event has become extremely popular over the years, drawing participants together for an intimate and cozy evening; a real reminder of times past.”
Organizers added, “Although we are not able to be physically together this year, we will create an opportunity to enjoy the warmth of our community and richness of our heritage. With a virtual presentation, people who live in other locales can easily attend. There will be a mix of original poetry, personal stories and a solo trombone presentation by Ryan Zawel. Presenters represent a cross-section of our community. The event is family-friendly.”
