Mentions continue to be slow. If you don’t have speaking engagements, you don’t make a lot of news. I do have one this month. The blog Ups and Downs of Family History V2.0 featured me as their Blog of the Week. I appreciate the shout out. They seem to be a mix of topics blog, too. Give it a look.

Sarah Uthoff By the Numbers June 2020

Show me the numbers they say and I was inspired by a poster for a concert at Kirkwood that included the performer’s number of Facebook likes. I thought, “I can do that!” I did previous posts Trundlebed Tales by the Numbers August 19, 2013,  December 14, 2013 June 8, 2014December 19, 2014, April 13, 2015September 20, 2015 , December 30, 2015April 6, 2016February 5, 2017August 20, 2017 , and February 25, 2018, November 19, 2018, and June 29, 2019. It’s a collection of raw numbers of my online activities. It’s interesting to track. This number is a little off because I never got a second one done in 2019. Hopefully I’ll be on schedule next year and get two done. Today’s post numbers are as of June 3, 2020.

I’ve gotten two November articles for this month. I recently got a copy of the Mansfield Mirror the week after Wilder Days. It had a photo of me with a nice detailed paragraph. [Thanks to Vicki Johnson my friends in Mansfield 😉 ] So I’ve added that as well.

October 2019 Presentations

Sarah by Overlook

Thanks to my Johnson County Historical Society school programs October is shaping up to be a busy month. 🙂

As a heads up, October is pretty much booked. I still take bookings for November and the first week or so of December, but after that I’m closed down until the last half of March. I’ve just had to cancel too many programs during those months over the years. [The weather could be bad on this end or that end. Some cancellations do happen, but we try to avoid it. 😉 ]

Just because I have Humanities slots doesn’t mean you can’t book direct. I’ve actually had more direct bookings this year than I have in years. Get in touch for specifics. info@trundlebedtales.com

Programs

  • One-Room School Program for classes Wednesday, October 16, 2019. (Not open to the public)
  • One-Room School Program for classes Wednesday, October 23, 2019. (Not open to the public)
  • One-Room School Program for classes Wednesday, October 30, 2019. (Not open to the public)

That’s it for this month so far, but it’s not too late. If you’d like me to come present near you make sure to tell your local library, museum or civic group.   Learn more here:
