The theme for this year's Tikhonaire is "Stories" and will consist of a number of stories collected over the past year as part of our ongoing St. Tikhon's Historical Initiative. Many people have volunteered in both the recording and transcribing process to collect these oral historical treasures that might have otherwise been lost and forgotten.
The stories can be of any variation, historical or personal, from any era. They can be your stories but it is preferred that they be "those well known or "famous stories" that get passed down from decade to decade and thereby take on almost a "legendary" or "fable" type quality in the rich tapestry that is the oral history of this most holy place. The stories can be as long or short as you would like. A good story can be told in as little as a few sentences to several pages.
THE STORIES WILL ALL BE PUBLISHED ANONYMOUSLY
The one caveat to this request for submissions is that the stories concentrate on building-up of one another and not the tearing down. The stories should all be edifying in some way and denote a positive and publishable character.
The submissions must be received by April 21, 2014 to be consider for this year's Tikhonaire but the sooner as they can be sent in the better. All stories can be submitted to info@stots,edu or mailed to PO Box 130 South Canaan, PA 18459 (Attention STORIES).
