September Meeting Notice

"It is a tangled skein, you understand, and I am looking for a loose end.”        
- Sherlock Holmes to Dr. John Watson, in “The Adventure of the Creeping Man.”

And we hope that you’ll help us untangle that skein by joining us for a fine evening of comestibles and camaraderie at the annual fall meeting of The Amateur Mendicant Society of Detroit.
Saturday, September 26, 2015 at 7 p.m.
30088 Dequindre Rd., Warren, MI 
Our assigned reading is “The Adventure of the Creeping Man,” a September story that involves a young woman, an angry wolfhound and a man who has begun to monkey around with things he shouldn’t.

The evening’s presenter will be Gasogene Emeritus Roy Pilot, BSI on “The Collector, the Author, the Sherlockian,” which draws on 50 years of scholarship, study and searches into arcane and amusing mysteries of the Sacred Writings.

We’ll also offer the usual toasts, prizes and more as part of this autumnal gathering of like-minded Holmesians – at one of our favorite haunts. We hope to see you on September 26th!

To join us, please mail your check for $26 per person payable to "AMATEUR MENDICANT SOCIETY" by Monday September 21st to:

Edward F. Stein, A.M.S.
25015 Oakbrooke
Southfield, MI  48033

The meal includes a buffet featuring chicken Marsala, roast beef, pasta Alfredo, mixed vegetables, salad, potatoes, rolls, dessert and beverages. As always, there will be a cash bar.

 “Come at once if convenient … if inconvenient, come all the same.”
