Story and Song for the EBSNS

On 26 May 2019, Halifax storyteller Claire Miller presented her “Swan song” gathering with a group of musical friends, in her gracious south-end home. After years of offering highly successful, well-attended storytelling salons, Claire has decided to turn her creative energies to other activities.

The free-will offering that Claire requested at this event was designated for the EBSNS, a most generous gesture.

EBSNS Board member Janet Maybee attended and reported that the event was “marvellous.” She noted that “35 devoted listeners” were present and “Claire made a point at the beginning to tell them why they should contribute to preserving the Bishop legacy.” This lively gathering garnered $380 for the society. Thank you so much Claire, and all your wonderful guests. The EBSNS is deeply grateful for such generosity.
