THE SHERLOCK HOLMES
PIPE CLUB OF BOSTON
Keeping The Smoking Lamp Lit Since 1989
Summer is finally winding down and let’s hope it’s not to uncomfortable at the club this month. I welcome the cooler nights as always.
We learned that former member and Treasurer Rick Frederics passed away last week. My heart goes out to all the members who knew Rick. I never had the pleasure of knowing the man. From what I gather he was a kind and gentle man and will be sadly missed.
I feel we are at a stale mate, covid has wreaked havoc on our attendance. Although we still get great participation it was nice when we had a larger crowd. We lost many due to attrition, health issues, moving, work, etc. We should think about trying to get more to enjoy our fellowship.
Couple of dates to remember…The SHPC Annual Cookout is on September 18th, we hope you will make it. And The Graywoodie Pipe Show on Saturday, October 1st. I am hoping to attend both and was also thinking about visiting Perretti’s in October or November. I lost track of the Members Favorite Mystery Tobacco and can’t remember if it’s in September or October.
September is the beginning of the local apple scene….All those who smoke an apple shaped bowl pipe at the meeting will get a chance at the President’s Raffle.
See you Tuesday, Kevin
