premiere presentation of our new storytelling program, GRANDMA GATEWOOD:
OHIO'S LEGENDARY HIKER took place on Tuesday, November 1, 2011 at
11:00 A.M. at the Westlake
Community Services Center to a sold out audience who enjoyed
hearing about Emma's life. Buckeye Trail Association members Patrick
and Mary Hayes were present and e-mailed back to say they enjoyed
the presentation and sent the picture above of Peter Huston (videographer),
Bette Lou Higgins (storyteller), and Patrick Hayes. This program
was paid for by a generous grant from the National
Storytelling Network. Additional research and planning was funded
by the Buckeye
Trail Association and the Ohio
Humanities Council. To arrange for a performance for your group,
contact Eden Valley directly.
that first presentation, the program has been presented more than
two dozen times to more than 1,200 people! (as of March, 2016).
