Stories & Supper Gatherings this Winter

Gather ‘round for stories of growing, sharing and eating food told by you and your neighbor
in Yancey County!

Date, Place & Themes

January 14 at St. Thomas Episcopal Church (Burnsville) from 2:30 – 5:30pm
Theme: The Greasiest Beans
Share a tale about growing food: a beautiful seed, a favorite crop, the best tasting vegetable you’ve ever grown, or maybe the greasiest bean you’ve ever seen . . .

March 18 at the Yancey Senior Center (Burnsville) from 2:30 – 5:30pm
Theme: My Granny’s Garden & Table
What story do you treasure about being in the garden with your granny or sitting at the table eating food she cooked?

Sharing Stories & Supper

Every Story & Supper Gathering has a theme and everyone in the audience is invited to share a personal story from their lives that relates to that theme.

If you have a story you want to share, leave us your name at the door between 2:00 – 2:30pm.

Open to anyone with a five-minute story to share on the afternoon’s theme.

At the end, we’ll eat a meal together. Bring a small dish related to the theme would be great, or just your appetite!

A few tips about telling a story at the gathering

All voices and ears welcome.
All stories have a beginning, middle and end. And they have a point! Being clear about why the story is important to you and why you want to tell it makes it even better.
5 minutes means 5 minutes. We want everyone who signs up to have a turn.

Hosted by Dig In! with St. Thomas Episcopal Church & Yancey Senior Center
