With the rise of digital television and social media pulling our eyeballs to the screens, we hear stories just about everywhere nowadays.

What about the more traditional way? Huddled up as a community, telling tales of glory and long-lost days over a nice cup of tea?

Well, you’re in luck, because Talk and Tea will be back for the first of its fall series on Oct. 23 at 2 p.m.

This time, the storytelling will come from Jan Caroll, a local whose mother’s diaries paints a vivid picture of the lifestyle on Saturna Island.

“They had a very interesting life over there… her mother described how they used to row their way to Sidney from Saturna, it’s fascinating,” said Susan Myerscough, who’s been helping organize the event for the last seven years.

During the spring and fall series, a local speaker is invited to come share their unique stories once a month.

“Come and listen and the tea’s delicious,”  Myerscough said.

The event, which is being presented by the Saanich Pioneer Society, is held at the Log Cabin Museum located at 7910 Polo Park Crescent, Saanichton, two blocks north of the Prairie Inn.

Admission is $5 for members, $7 for visitors, tea is included.
