Last year, senior Jake Baird won the "Best-Told Tale" award with a reading of his story "A Ship Called Legacy," inspired by artifacts viewed on a field trip to the MV Museum.
This year, Project Vine students of all levels have prepared or selected some great stories to share with the crowd at this "Moth-Style" event. Please join us! We're hoping to raise funds to support community events like this, which are at the heart of Project Vine's mission, and to fund a memorial scholarship in Jake's honor. The Jake Sequoia Baird award will be given out for the first time this spring to a graduating Project Vine senior who most exemplifies the spirit of Project Vine the way that Jake saw it: a place to learn more from people and relationships, and to value each other, above all else.
Suggested donation is $5 per person at the door. A cash concession will be available featuring hot apple cider, coffee and a selection of baked goods.
The MV Museum will also have available a collection of artifacts found around the Island which seniors this year were encouraged to use as inspiration for their stories. You can browse these yourself and see if they inspire a story in you. Our thanks to Ann DuCharme and the MV Museum for working with Project Vine on this project for the second year!
All are welcome to tell your own spooky, zany, epic or otherwise "Island Lore" tale... or just listen and enjoy! All-ages welcome.
We hope to see you there!
