LLNB Hall of Fame
To celebrate International Year of the Volunteer, LLNB launched a new initiative to honour its volunteers, past and present, who have contributed significantly to the growth and development of LLNB, or its councils. The "LLNB Volunteer Hall of Fame" was unveiled at the AGM held October 12 & 13 in Sussex.
Our very first LLNB Hall of Fame recipients were:
Congratulations to you all. LLNB thanks each and every one of you for helping to make LLNB the biggest and the best volunteer literacy organization in the province! You're all #1 in our books!
Do you have an interesting story to tell or know someone who does? The Minto Literacy Council has received funding from the National Literacy Secretariat to host a StoryFest in Minto on November 3, 2001. We are interested in hearing and documenting local stories - truth or fiction. For example, did you know there were fashionable cattle rustlers in Minto many years ago? It appears that cow thieves once put rubber boots on a stolen cow to keep them from getting caught. The boots disguised the "clop, clop" sound the hooves made while walking across the wooden bridge!
Take out your pen and paper and join us for a trip down memory lane! If you have any questions or would like to submit a story, please contact us for more information. And please, if you know someone who would be a great storyteller, give us their names and we will be sure to contact them, too.
The StoryFest Committee is:

Have you got a question you need answered? Here is this edition's question and answer column, compiled and submitted by Julie Kean Marks, our Field Services Coordinator. Julie will work hard to answer any and all of your questions regarding Laubach books, materials, training, council operations, recruitment, and anything else you may have questions about.
How can our council arrange to have a visit from the Laubach Field Services Coordinator?
Marks, FSC, would like to visit each LLNB council once a year to exchange
information and to provide a link from the councils to the provincial and
national Laubach organizations. You can arrange to have Julie attend one of
your meetings by contacting her at:
