 “… some of my most classic cases have had the least promising commencement.”              
-- Sherlock Holmes in “The Adventure of the Six Napoleons.”       

And in this season of commencements, we heartily invite you to join us at the annual
spring/summer dinner meeting of The Amateur Mendicant Society of Detroit.

Our assigned story and brief discussion is on “The Adventure of the Six Napoleons,” in which what seems to be simple vandalism actually involves murder, the Mafia and a rare missing jewel.

There will also be the usual (and unusual) toasts, prizes and more.
