PLPA Featured in the Port Ludlow Voice

Port Ludlow Performing Arts was featured in the July 2020 issue of the Port Ludlow Voice. Not only did the publication’s Art Director Jay Syverson create this amazing cover featuring past PLPA performers, we were also given a two-page spread to offer a look back in time at the history of our organization (see HISTORY link on this website).

The all-volunteer Voice staff puts together this monthly magazine to promote all Port Ludlow activities, and is especially responsive to helping arts organizations publicize their activities.

Yes, that is me in the picture. Perhaps you remember me without the beard. But, halfway through this home incarceration I thought to myself, “Why am I shaving all the time?” I am being seen by almost no one (except my wife, Karolyn, of course – more on that later). So, I just stopped shaving. You may not recognize me with that beard, because the last time I grew a beard was in graduate school at Cal Berkeley about 1970. It was red back then. Now I’m calling it my COVIDBeard. Should I love it or lose it? Perhaps we will let the PLPA board decide by majority vote. On the other hand, Karolyn says she has fifteen proxy votes in her purse should anyone want to hold a vote.
