Planning a party . . .
Things have been a little too quiet in Peoria lately, Sherlock-wise. Having to drive to Indiana for a good Holmes fix last week May have demonstrated that. But with the 25th anniversary of our local scion, the Hansoms of John Clayton, coming up, it seemed like a good time to make a little noise.
But the time for coming up with a new program for that anniversary in the next month or so is rather limited -- what's a Sherlockian to do? Well, it's an anniversary, right? Plenty of history behind an anniversary, right? So why not use that history, and pull out every trick the Hansoms have learned in the last 25 years for one crazy night? Here's your first glimpse of the invitation, for the full printed product, send your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org
that was 25 years
in the making.
Feeling like you might have missed something in the first 25 years of Peorias Hansoms of John Clayton?
Not to worry . . . were going to cram
all of it that we can into a single afternoon and evening.
All the wacky ideas. All the demonstrations of Sherlockian knowledge and talent.
All of the unpredictability of
Sherlock Holmes himself.
