The Spirit Stick award has been an annual tradition for Two Rivers Story Spinners since the idea was first conceived by Maureen Korte two years ago. The stick itself was fashioned by Margery Sudbrock and was inspired by a Native American design. This will be the third consecutive year the Spirit Stick will be awarded to a deserving member. The purpose of this award is to recognize the efforts of the individual and his/her contribution to the Story Spinner group.
This year’s nominees are:
- Dan Bagley
- Papa Charley Charles Johnson
- Maureen Korte
- Thea Nicholas
- Dave Wharff
The Spirit Stick will be awarded to the selected recipient at the member picnic on July 26 at the home of Thea Nicholas.
The Executive committee wishes to thank everyone who took the time to appreciate another member’s contribution and submit a recommendation for this award.
