Event Description

Five minutes, no notes, true story.  You can do it.  The story April theme is “Old Chestnuts.” Everyone has a few of those stories told over and over at gatherings of friends or family.  Those stories often start off with the words “Remember when...”  Then everyone nods, gives a little chuckle or sigh, for they know what is coming next, but lean in more closely to listen intently to that good ol’ tale.  For an audience that will lean in and listen intently, join us Friday eve, April 13th at  8:00 pm at the United Parish in Brookline.  To sign up to tell a story, or for more info email The April charity of the month is the Joseph M. Smith Community Health Center.
