Natalee and Jim Ganyon

Natalee and Jim met after the passing of their spouses and felt an immediate connection—both personally and through their shared love of puppetry. In 2016, they married after meeting online, discovering their mutual love for puppets and devotion to God.

As retired teachers, Natalee and Jim have a deep passion for working with young people. They continue to serve their community by volunteering their services and programs, offering Educational Storytelling and Historical Storytelling across the state. Their dedication to sharing their passion and creativity is unwavering, and they deeply appreciate any donations for gas and expenses to help them continue their mission.
