                                                 THANK YOU . . .
  To Harry Keefe for the presentation he made about his good friend of many years, Steve Dusheck.   I'm sorry that I didn't make the meeting but the report was fantastic.  Harry did more than 20 of Steve's effects, all with household and simple items.
And after; the 24 members and guests enjoyed many of the members in the open mic.

August's annual picnic was a huge success inspite of the weather. Thank you goes out to the hosts Bob and Linda Connors. Not only was there great magic entertainment but music and ventriloquism. AND super food!
                  August's meeting
 Thread and magic are going together this month with Dave Mc Clements. 
Open mic will be sewing a fine seam!  No, only kidding, if it's threadable (is that a word?) that's fine if not come and show or ask us something else  --we are game!
