70th Anniversary Meeting Notice

"It is a capital mistake to theorize in advance of the facts.”                  
- Sherlock Holmes in “The Adventure of the Second Stain.”       

Don’t make your own capital mistake by turning down this invite to share with us the very special 70th ANNIVERSARY DINNER meeting of The Amateur Mendicant Society of Detroit.

Sunday, May 1, 2016 at 1 p.m.
Lelli’s Italian Restaurant
885 North Opdyke Road, Auburn Hills, MI   
Our assigned story is “The Adventure of the Second Stain” in which a missing diplomatic document could mean war unless Holmes and Watson can untangle this shadowy affair.

The once-every-70-years celebration will also feature a recreation of the very first meeting of the Amateur Mendicants on April 26, 1946 with presentations on the historicity of the AMS and “The Adventure of the Literary Agent,” a live drama (“Meeting in Baker Street”) and general rejoicing ad libitum – plus special toasts, prizes and more.
