to a new venue, for a quiet listening space with good food and country charm. VoiceMail is an open mic for storytelling ( adult venue) held the last Monday of each month. ( find and “Like” VoiceMail on Facebook please, and if you can help spread the word, thanks!)
Say Hello to our new home!!
You can tell this is a well known landmark in Mansfield Center. It has been a store serving the community for a very long time. What makes this such a special place?
It is inviting; drawing in a wide variety of travellers off the main road through town and the Uconn campus. There are always a few cars out front!
VoiceMail open mic for storytelling packed up and moved to the Mansfield General Store. ( find them on FaceBook) Our opening night there will be Jan. 30, 2012 at 7 p.m. The feature teller will be local favorite Gail Zeiba. There will be 5-6 open mic slots for other storytellers to take a turn sharing a tale. The soup will be on, the pastries sweet and the stories memorable. There are antiques, penny candy, cold local made soda and fresh Mountain Dairy milk products.
As before the donations collected during VoiceMail are split with half going to support the good works of the Connecticut Storytelling Center and the other half going to the feature teller. Won’t you come out and support us at our new venue. Kelly and Lisa who run the store are opening special just for us! Please support their time and effort and come for the soup bar and desserts. If this is the year of the buy local movement this is the place to see that in action!
