It’s LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD, along with her granny and a wolf. Chicago puppeteer Connor Asher has
his own delightful version of the story and we’ve invited him to share it with our members and their guests.
The date is Saturday, October 5, 2019. We’ll gather at the Polish American Cultural Center at 6:00 p.m. for
a social hour and enjoy a buffet meal around 7 p.m. The Center is located at 33204 Maple Lane (an
extension of Hoover), just north of 14 Mile Road in Sterling Heights.
The buffet will include a crispy salad with assorted dressings and toppings, petite beef tenderloin with
mushrooms, tender breast of chicken, fettuccini with broccoli and garlic, and fresh or smoked kielbasa with
kapusta (sauerkraut). These entrees will be accompanied by a blend of brown and wild rice and a vegetable
medley. The dinner also includes fresh baked bread, coffee, tea and the chef’s selection of assorted desserts.

The $35.00 per person fee includes an open bar, dinner, table décor and place favors. Please
send your check, made out to Detroit Puppeteers Guild, along with your name and the full
names of any additional members or guests.
Yes! Guests are more than welcome.
Send to: Sue Ostrowski, 30084 Merrick Drive, Warren, MI 48092 — and make sure it ar-
rives before October 1st.
POTLATCH is Around the Corner

Chick here for information and Registration.

Held at the Potawatomie Inn at Pokagon Stage Park near Angola, Indiana. There are performances, work-shops, an exhibit,
social events, a Trading Post store and anyone can perform for 5 minutes dur-ing Potpourri. We have one meal in common
(Sunday brunch) and the price of this is included in the low registration fee.

Make your room reservations separately with the Inn before October 1. Please register for Potlatch before October 25. Even
though you can register at the door, early registration helps greatly with planning for the event and you save $10.
