Get your tickets now for the York County History Storytellers next Tuesday

It is almost time for the Fifth Annual York County History Storytellers Night at 7 p.m. next Tuesday, December 10 at the Appell Center’s Capitol Theater, a beautiful historic site in its own right.  We have had great turnouts in the past and expect the same this year, so we have secured a larger venue.  I have been assured that parking is free in the city parking garage right across Philadelphia Street, just a few steps across the street.  Or, perhaps you can grab a metered spot nearby, also free after 5 p.m.  There are plenty of good restaurants down town, so you can make an evening of it if you wish.

You can enjoy two hours of entertainment, complete with audience participation, for a nominal ticket price.  Who knows, you might learn a little more about York County History, or, you might know something the storytellers don’t.  We love it when you share with us and the rest of the audience.  So take a little time off from hectic holiday preparation and sit back and enjoy yourself.

Here is a link to a post on my subject on that first History Storytellers night four years ago, “Was York the First Capital?”   Two years ago the theme was a somewhat lighter “Weird York County.”  I chose Slaymaker’s Ghost from Lower Windsor Township and the Headless Horseman of Codorus Valley.

This year each of us will do two short presentations on what we view as pivotal moments in history that happened right here in York County.  As for mine, one goes back 242 years and the other a little over a century—recent history as York County goes.  Come out and hear a variety of stories from the storytellers.
