Steel City Stories was back at the First Unitarian Church on November 1st, and the theme of the night was Moonlighting! We heard a range of stories about what people do in their spare time, from passions to obligations, and all that comes with it! For those of you who missed out (or just want to re-listen), keep an eye on our Soundcloud page as we’ll be posting podcasts of the stories there. Let’s dive in!
Anne Cumby was our host for the night, regaling us with her own tales of moonlighting.
Susan Creer kicked off the night detailing the struggles she has experienced with the ODSP system.
Our very own Grace Evans, a Steel City Stories committee member, told of her relationship with her 106 year old friend Mrs. Goodale, and how she ‘moonlighted’ learning and sewing a quilt over ten years.
What was a weekend passion became a full-time job for Kate Flynn, as she went from working as a 9-5er in the city, to farming with her husband in a true fish-out-of-water story.
Carla Borstad Klassen shared her experience of being a new parent, and all the surprises it entails.
Ending the night was Darlene Chrissley, telling her enlightening experience of discovering skinny-dipping.
Unfortunately Joy and Gary Warner were unable to attend.
And that’s it! It was another great event, with wonderful people and fascinating stories. We are taking a short break for the winter, but will be back on March 7, with stories about “Faking It”. Stay tuned for details!
