“Third year coming to hear the stories. We love it!!” This was one of the comments made by ‘Listeners’ as they emerged from the Story Barn at Dyers Bay on a summer evening last year.
Each Monday evening during June, July & August, visitors and residents of all ages are welcomed to the Story Barn, where they are warmly greeted by Storyteller Ron Baker. Ron tells a variety of short stories — well known old favourites and others by more recent writers; some humorous and some with thought provoking content.
Guests are invited to write comments in the Visitor’s Book, and the response to the stories is appreciative in many ways:
“A great night with beautiful stories & comedy too!”
“FANTASTIC! Thank you for making me feel like a little boy again.”
“Thank you for bringing back my childhood feelings of happiness and wonder”.
“What a wonderful and whimsical evening!”
On the second Monday of each month Listeners have the opportunity to become Tellers if they wish to share a story. It’s an invitation, with no pressure, and their participation is warmly appreciated.
Cold drinks and cookies are served in a short intermission. There is no charge for admission. Donations to the Stephen Lewis Foundation are welcomed.
All are welcome at the Story Barn, Dyers Bay, from Babes to Grannies! We look forward to greeting local residents and visitors at THE STORY BARN Mondays at 7 pm, June 3 to August 26, 2019.
