Speaker: Cheryl Hamilton, "Storytelling," Founder & Exec Dir, Stellar Story Company.

Cheryl Hamilton is Founder and Executive Director of Stellar Story Company. She has devoted her career to advancing more inclusive communities and storytelling, from her first job managing the unexpected migration of 2,500 Somali migrants to her hometown in Maine to her current role directing curation and coaching for Stories from the Stage. She was the national coordinator for RefugeeWorks where she advised companies on how to welcome immigrants into their workforces. She is also the creator and director of Suitcase Stories, a program that features stories of refugee and immigrant life. In addition to the trainings and events she leads for institutions, Cheryl has coached more than 1000 people from 80 countries to tell their stories. Her personal stories have been featured on national podcasts, and she routinely performs on stages throughout the U.S.

We will have a delicious catered meal, wine and other beverages; enjoy dinner with us! Food allergies or diet restrictions? Please contact Ellen at: epwhalley@gmail.com.

We are collecting diapers (all sizes) and wipes (any brand) to donate to The Centre Street Food Pantry. Our Goal is 2000!  Collecting diapers and wipes may seem random but here are a few facts:  

  • Diaper rash and infections cause pain and stress; infant chronic stress impairs brain development.
  • Prolonged crying infants are at risk for abuse & neglect from tired and stressed caregivers.
  • Government assistance funds do not include diapers. 

The ripple effect on babies, families and society is incalculable. Something as seemingly insignificant as a clean diaper can change lives. Please bring your donation of diapers and/or wipes to this evening's Speaker event.
