PUPPET PARTY, TAKE TWO!
“Soup ‘n’ Puppets”
We had to cancel the January Puppet Party due to inclement weather, and we’re ready to
reschedule! The new date is Saturday, February 9, 5:00 p.m. at the home of Sue Ostrowski in
All other elements are the same: Rob Papineau still has plans for a lot of puppet games, mystery
games and improv games — a fun free-for-all to loosen up those frozen muscles and maybe inspire
your new show.
FOOD AND BEVERAGES — Members of the Board are bringing a variety of hot home-made
soups, tasty breads and even some dessert. The Guild is supplying most of the refreshments,
including non-alcoholic beverages. If you wish to bring adult beverages, that’s fine. Best of all, there
is no fee.
WHAT TO BRING? — For the games, a couple of easy silly things. 1. A puppet. That’s ONE
puppet. Don’t be surprised if somebody else gets to play with it. 2. A strange, miscellaneous object.
It can come from your garage, household or yard. No bigger than, say, a water pitcher. Just walk
around your house and pick some-thing up. Extra points if you don’t even know what it is.
ONE RULE — You must RSVP by February 7th. Call or e-mail Sue Ostrowski at (586) 558-5523
or firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know how many are coming.
DIRECTIONS — here’s how to find Sue’s home at 30084 Merrick, Warren, MI 48092: It is located
east of Dequindre and north of Common Road (12 1/2Mile). From I-75 turn east on 12 Mile, then
north onto Dequindre. Turn east onto Common Road, then north on Merrick. The house is on the
east side of the street.
NEW MEMBERS? — This is a STILL a great chance to get acquainted.
