Memorial Gathering for Susan Diamond

Dear friends:

Allan Devitt sends his continued thanks to all of you for your good wishes and expressions of sympathy. Allan has now made plans for a gathering to remember and celebrate Susan’s life.  

Susan would have turned 70 in mid-August and the gathering will be held on Sunday, August 18th in their hometown of Bensenville, IL.  

There will be a midday memorial service at their well-loved Bensenville Community Public Library and then a dinner at the nearby American Legion.  

In the future Allan will pass along hotel suggestions and, for those who arrive on the Saturday, Allan would be glad to arrange an informal local get-together for that evening if you’d let him know you’ll be there then. 

You are welcome to phone Allan – their home phone (630) 227-9127 is the best, but his cell (630) 247-8203 is also fine (Allan is not on e-mail, so if you need to contact him, please call at the numbers listed above).

January ASH events scheduled!

Dear ASH and Friends,

Looking ahead past the sacred and secular holidays to our Sherlockian festivities, this is to advise you that the Adventuresses will again usher in the Birthday Weekend with an informal gathering on Wednesday, January 9, 2019, and to invite you to join us there.

We will gather for this special “ASH Wednesday” at 6:30pm at our customary locale:

Annie Moore’s
22 East 41st St. (between Madison and Fifth Aves.)
New York City
(212) 986-7826

We meet upstairs: the manager can direct you to the elevator.

This will be a happy occasion to meet with (and eat with and drink with) kindred spirits from around the globe.  As usual, there is no set charge – we each pay for what we consume (plus tax and tip, of course).

If you can attend, please advise either me (at or Susan Rice (at  All are welcome: we just need to have a good idea of how many to expect so there can be enough places set to accommodate the throng.

Now, IF you’ve already informed me or Susan that you’re coming, you DON’T have to do so again — for you this message is just a confirmation of the time and place.

The Compliments of the Season!
