“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 sostrowski@innocent.com 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.
