ZOOM: Virtual Festival

donna-reachingDonna Ingham will be the featured storyteller at the Spirit of Oklahoma Storytelling Festival.  She will tell on Saturday night.  Donna is a humorist and folklorist who takes the ancient art of storytelling and gives it a Texas twist to entertain audiences of all ages.  Hear tall tales, folklore, historical and personal stories told only as a Texan could – or would.

Message from President Liz Parker:

The spirit of Oklahoma Storytelling Festival will be June 4 & 5, 2021.  Of course, it will be on Zoom this year.  One of the items on the festival agenda is a general membership meeting.  That meeting will be on Saturday, June 5 during the festival.  It is required by our by-laws that a slate of officers that will be voted on in that meeting be presented to the membership  before the meeting.  Below you will find a slate of officers approved by the board.  Please look this over.  You will see that we still need a nominee for secretary.  If you are willing to serve in this position, please let me know.  You will be receiving more detailed information about the festival shortly.  Please make plans to join us on Zoom for the festival and let your friends know about the event.
