Story Matters: Six Amazing Stories That Will Change the Way You See Your Neighbors


It’s time for another Story Matters this Thursday, March 16 at 7:00 PM at Fort Thomas Coffee. This month’s speakers include Gary Simon, Ally Cox Allesandro, Casey Gesenhues, Bradley Younger, Maryanne Zelesnik, and Molly Hardin.

As we move ever closer to the 150th birthday of Fort Thomas in July we at Fort Thomas Matters want to celebrate our rich history and depth of character (and characters) with a story series, similar to Cincy Stories, where people in the community have the opportunity to tell a story that reveals a deeper universal truth. Chuck Keller, one of the organizers, says, “We believe that a community defines itself by the stories it tells. And, boy, do we have great stories to tell.”

Why stories? A person, family, community, and nation are defined by their stories. And stories come naturally to all of us. After all, that is what we do when we get together. We tell stories - about vacations, sports, challenges, wins, losses, heartbreak, change, discovery, dreams, work, and play - and more. We are the stories that we tell. Story Matters is a community event to share and define who we are in Fort Thomas in a fun and engaging evening and it’s always free.

Each of the event’s six storytellers has ten minutes to relate their stories. Speakers are engaging, thoughtful, funny, and ultimately revealing.  The event shares our collective experiences and bring us together as a community to learn from each other and, even though we do not share the same experiences or have the same points of view or backgrounds, we share more than we think.  Keller says that, “When we share our stories, we share an experience that makes us stronger.”

  1. Do we need to make a reservation for this or does there tend to be plenty of room?
