Since the dawn of time, humans have loved telling and listening to stories as we have gathered around fires to stay warm and safe. Storytelling captures our attention, engraves our collective memory and weaves connections. Mark your calendars for a performance of Orcas StoryFest at the Orcas Senior Center on Friday, Aug. 23, at 1 p.m. The performance is open and free to all.
