"We have been enjoying the Story Table since 2021 when we were lucky to find Nicholas and his amazing stories he shares with all of us! Story Table is a time where you are transported to a magical place, filled with adventures across many parts of the world but that is not all, as the whole family enjoys the dancing and contemplative coloring parts of each meeting. Nicholas has a way of engaging with both children and grown-ups creating a living story. He also brings diversity by speaking different languages and hosting guests from diverse cultural backgrounds, so each story is a treat. We can’t thank him enough for all that he does! He truly is a wonderful person."
