SATURDAY 1/19: Tales from Tangier at Barrier Islands Center

“Tales from Tangier — An Evening of Lively Stories at the Barrier Islands Center,” 6 p.m. Saturday, January 19.

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation will host a free evening of storytelling about the past, present, and future life on Tangier Island.

Some of Tangier’s most colorful characters will share treasured memories and perspectives that exemplify the unique lifestyle that is Tangier.

Scheduled speakers include the Mayor of Tangier, James “Ooker” Eskridge, Charles and Cindy Parks, Lonnie and Carol Moore, and others.

The evening of storytelling will be hosted by Don Baugh, CBF’s Vice President of Education, who will ask speakers to reflect on their childhood and how life is changing and becoming more challenging on Tangier. They share a love and concern for their unique home in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay.

All realize that a healthier Bay is key to maintaining a healthy economy for the future of the island.

At the conclusion of the storytelling, the Chairplace Players, a bluegrass band from Craddockville, will perform.

    “Tales from Tangier” sounds like a great evening. I am not sure I will be able to get away from Richmond to attend.
    Is there any chance of it being filmed? There would be more than a few people willing to pay for a copy.
