Kay Price will be the featured speaker at the Metamora Woman’s Club at 7 p.m. Nov. 21, at Christian Union Church. 

A member of the Peoria Prairie Storytelling Guild, Price will portray “Characters From Local History”.  Guests are welcome.

Price is a registered nurse, has served as director of youth and education at St. Paul Lutheran Church, and is active in ministry with four mission trips to Biloxi and two to Alaska for Bible Storytelling and recently returned from a mission trip to Joplin. 

She is a presenter at the National Christian Storytelling Festival in Georgetown, Ky.  She recently traveled to Israel to learn more about her Christian faith and will return in May 2012 as a Bible storyteller. 

She also is a champion chicken caller, prizewinner of the Peoria Prairie Liar’s contest, a champion nail driver, and the “character in the closet” at the Flannigan House Tours for the past three years.  She has dressed in black mourning costumes and portrayed dead women of the Bartonville State Hospital, dressed as an Irish washerwoman and hopped on private coach busses to spread the stories of dirty laundry in Peoria, and dressed up as dead women while telling their tales at cemeteries.

Education Department is in charge of the Nov. meeting.  Members are encouraged to continue to collect coupons, cancelled stamps, empty prescription pill bottles, old eyeglasses, Boxtops for Education, Campbell soup labels, plastic bags, and pull tabs for all the recycling projects.
