Fall Meeting

               “But you have the truth now, Holmes, and you can die with the knowledge
                                                          that I have killed you.”                      
           -- Culverton Smith to Sherlock Holmes in “The Adventure of the Dying Detective.”
And you might say that we’re dying to have you join us for an evening of comestibles and conviviality at the annual fall meeting of The Amateur Mendicant Society of Detroit.

Saturday, October 5, 2013 at 7:00

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of its first appearance, our assigned story is “The Adventure of The Dying Detective” in which a dastardly killer attempts to silence Holmes forever using a devious biological weapon.

The evening’s presenter will be Regina Stinson, BSI

We’ll also have the usual toasts, a quiz plus prizes and more. We hope to see you on October 5th!
