The first evening of the Not Just for Kids Storytelling 2014 occurred this past Sunday, July 27th.  Although Tim Van Egmond was unable to make it, he arranged the more than capable and whole-heartedly wonderful John Porcino to cover the event. 

Mr. Porcino was fantastic!  His stories and music delighted all that attended and engaged the entire crowd – young and not so young!  Together everyone could sing along – even having the chance to “create rain” for the frog chorus.  It was truly a great evening!
