“The children were fabulous,” said Hardman. “They did a marvelous job of writing stories.

“It’s an incredible learning experience for them.”

The winners of the competition received a treasure chest full of gold coins and Finch will tell her story at the next Lions Club meeting and then again at the annual Shells and Tales event on Feb. 28 and March 3 at Gulf Coast State College Gulf/Franklin Center

The storytelling event was sponsored by the CCA and Port St. Joe Lions Club, and organized by CCA treasurer Brooks Jones.

 “I always encourage parents to talk to their children,” said Nease. “Tell your stories now, because when you’re gone, your stories are gone with you.”
