New Senior Story, AGM and other news from Medicine Hat Cowboy Poetry

Already a month of the new year is gone! We are excited to bring you our latest mini-documentary in our Stories from Seniors series, We Got Charolais Cows by the charming Grace Roth. See for yourself:

You can also link to all our previous videos.

The Stories from Seniors program has proven to be most gratifying for all. Jen and Cheryl (videographer) report that the storytellers show up for the shoot dressed to the nines and carrying themselves like they are Hollywood stars! If someone you know has a good story to tell and would like to “experience fame” contact Jen Zollner, 403-529-6384 or mailto:

Notice of Annual General Meeting:

The Medicine Hat Cowboy Poetry Foundation ‘s annual general meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 16 at 7PM via Zoom. All members will be sent the meeting details. On the agenda is a plea for a new treasurer. Our current treasurer, Carol Eisenbarth, is needing to step away from some of her commitments. She reports that the job is not onerous, a few hours per month. She is willing to train and guide the new treasurer. If you or someone you know is willing to take on this vital role, please contact Jen Zollner.

Book of Senior Stories Coming Soon

From our Stories from Seniors project came the inspiration to create a book with the biographies of the contributors, the printed poetry and art by two local artists, for readers to enjoy anytime. Jen and Shelley have been working tirelessly to bring this book to print. If you or someone you know would be interested in sponsoring the first print run of the book, contact Jen Zollner. You can also pre-order your copy for $15 by connecting with Jen.
