NPAC’s Family Night at Festival of Trees
November 16, 2012 @ 10:00 pm – November 17, 2012 @ 12:00 am
This year a special night just for families has been added to the Festival of Trees.
On Friday evening, Nov. 16, 5:00 to 7:00, NPAC will welcome children and families to see the trees, wreaths and other items available for silent auction.
NPAC will have two special guests: Kate Agmann, a performing member of the Jonesborough Storytellers Guild, and Santa Claus. Agmann will be on hand to entertain the children with stories. She was born and raised in northeast Texas and is the mother of two and the grandmother of three.
After moving to New York and then Florida, three hurricanes landed her in Tennessee. Agmann lives in a log cabin on the bank of the Nolichucky River.
At the early age of six, Kate started telling stories when she realized that her answers to “What happened at school today?” just weren’t getting the responses she wanted.
Stories were a way of life for her and as much a part of family dinners as chicken and dumplings. She used storytelling to weave together the facets of her life that include everything from teaching adults and children in public and private schools to selling art and antiques.
Agmann will make a presentation at 5:30 and again at 6:30. Santa Claus will be on hand with treat bags for the children, and the Lighthouse Assembly of God Bell Choir will be performing during the evening.
