Jean Mattson and Joan King Festival Scholarship

Please share a memory or greeting!
In April 2020, the Puppeteers of Puget Sound decided to name our festival scholarship for Jean Mattson and Joan King, long-time PoPS board members and supporters. With the pandemic, we never had a party to celebrate their contributions. Both in their nineties, Jean and Joan find email and social media access difficult.

We would like to compile greetings, memories and thanks from friends and puppeteers into a print document for each of them. Please email your message with the subject line “Jean and
Joan Scholarship”
to jean@thistletheatre.org

I'm a college librarian and dabble in puppetry. Nettle (my profile picture and creation) enjoys reading and singing with preschoolers as well as annoying my colleagues.
