Ex Fabula: Volunteer Appreciation

Nov 18, 2017

Volunteers are the backbone of Ex Fabula. From the President of the Board of Directors, to that friendly guy that greets you at the door of every StorySlam, and every and little task in between, our volunteers make us who we are. This Tuesday, November 21st, we hold our last Volunteer Orientation of 2017 - and you're invited (find more info here).

This week, in the spirit of volunteering, we’re sharing stories from a couple of Ex Fabual volunteers who are as good in front of an audience as they are helping behind the scenes.

When Jacqueline Rice began her “Do The Math” story, she asked the audience to remember a series of numbers. She went on to weave the numbers through transcending time and place, involving a once-in-a-lifetime musical performance: "Antonio Banderas and the Power of Art."

Nelson López was his father’s 99th child - at least that’s the family lore. In this "Fatherhood" story, Nelson shared childhood anecdotes, building a family tree through siblings discovered through social media, as well as how his father influenced him in his own style of parenting.

In this weekend just before Thanksgiving, let's take a moment to thank our volunteers, by listening to their own special stories:
