Winter Meeting Notice

 “My dear Watson, is it beyond the limits of human ingenuity to furnish an explanation?”                  
-- Sherlock Holmes in “The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge.”       

Unlike Holmes, we need no explanation to invite you to join us for an evening of comestibles and conviviality at the annual winter meeting of The Amateur Mendicant Society of Detroit

Saturday, February 6, 2016 at 7 p.m.
Commonwealth Club
30088 Dequindre Road, Warren, MI                                                                                                                                                                          
Our assigned story is “The Adventure of the Wisteria Lodge,” in which a client comes to Holmes and Watson after a most singular and unsettling evening that has led to voodoo -- and murder.

Michael Jones will also present a learned discussion about the most famous landlady in literature, Mrs. Hudson. There will also be toasts, prizes, birthday cake for Holmes and the awarding of the annual Beggar’s Cup. Annual dues ($5 members, $15 non-members) will also be collected.

NOTE: Please make dinner checks payable to: Amateur Mendicant Society of Detroit.

To join us, please mail your check for $26 per person by FRIDAY, JANUARY 29th to:

c/o Edward F. Stein

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

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