THE SHERLOCK HOLMES
PIPE CLUB OF BOSTON
Keeping The Smoking Lamp Lit Since 1989
President's Holiday Message
Hopefully by the time you get this note all the Thanksgiving leftovers have been consumed or artfully transformed into some sort of delicious soup or casserole for yet another few days of eating. For me, if I see another turkey sandwich over the next 6 to 8 weeks, I think I may just go insane.
For us, the great thing about Thanksgiving is it is the segway to our banner “Holiday Extravaganza”. That’s right it’s just about a week away and it is certainly going to be one of the best in the past few years. No covid scare, the long-term weather forecast looks promising, and Tom has been working his magic and wheeling and dealing all year long and had procured quit an array of pipes, tobacco and accoutrements for the raffle and give away. So why don’t you break your regular routine and join us if you have not been in a while. We certainly miss all who have not attended recently. Remember the tobacco give away is open to all paid members and the raffles are open to everyone including the Yankee Swap. You must bring a wrapped tin of tobacco if you would like to participate in the Yankee Swap. As usual food will be provided by the club with vegetarian options. Please be sure to reply to the email from our Secretary letting us know if you will attend so we know how much food to get.
Hope to see you all there and wishing you and yours all the joys of the season.
The Christmas Pipe
