Fall Meeting Announcement - October 7th

“The world is big enough for us. No ghosts need apply.”

-- Sherlock Holmes to Dr. Watson in “The Adventure of the Sussex Vampire.”

Though it be the month of ghostly apparitions and Halloween, we cordially invite you to cast such thoughts aside and join us and other Sherlockians for an evening of fine food and conversation at the annual fall meeting of the Amateur Mendicant Society of Detroit.
