When: Sunday, Feb. 28, 4 pm
Where: Gethsemane Church, off Depot Street in Proctorsville
Description: What do a state legislator, independent bookstore owner and a fearless cyclist biking alone in India have in common? They each have what it takes to stand up and tell a true story without notes in front of a live audience in the third annual True Tales event in Proctorsville. These plucky yarn spinners will join four others who will present a Vermont version of Moth Radio Hour, a popular NPR program that has spawned similar events throughout the country. The storytelling event will benefit Gethsemane Church, which has hosted the Raise the Roof Concert Series in its acoustically perfect space for the last four winters. To say thank you and replenish the church’s winter heating fuel, True Tales will donate all proceeds from the door to the little church with a big heart---and the audience will bask in the warmth of a late winter afternoon of well told stories. Last year’s event included tales of a flying lesson gone wrong, a local sting operation and pet sitting for escape-artist sheep. This year the lineup will bring you new stories guaranteed to be just as entertaining.
Cost: $10 to benefit Gethsemane Church.
