Tommy Windsor Ring 197
NO. 197, MARIETTA, OHIO – The Tommy Windsor Ring
Meets 2nd Thu., 7:00 pm Lafayette Hotel – Marietta, OH
CHESTER W. GAULT, Secretary –

The May meeting of Ring 197 was a bit unusual in several ways. First, we all met at a local restaurant in downtown Marietta for a pre meeting dinner. We were accompanied by 4 of our friends from Ring 243 in Canton, Ohio who had made the 100-mile trip to Marietta to attend our special meeting.

After dinner, we traveled, by caravan, approximately 8 miles to our meeting site for the evening. Giving up our normal meeting room at the Lafayette Hotel, we were excited to be returning to our former long time meeting site for one more gathering. It was the home of Midge Miller, widow of the late Ring 197 member Ken Miller. Ken’s well-stocked magic shop, located in his home, was still full of thousands of magic items which Midge had been maintaining.

After a very short business meeting, everyone moved into the magic shop with a free reign to peruse the treasures at our leisure. The shopping was only interrupted by Midge’s homemade dessert, then back to the magic. Two hours and several bags full of magic later, the members and guests started trickling out.

We appreciate our guests, Mike Bishop, Mike Salvino, Ron Barnett and Randy Weidenhamer making the trip from Canton to join in our special evening. We also appreciated the hospitality shown by Midge Miller in hosting our meeting. We appreciated the opportunity to once again meet in the familiar surroundings of Ken Miller’s magic shop. We miss meeting monthly in a real magic shop but most of all we miss Ken’s presence there.

If you are in the Marietta area, we would love to have you visit with us on the 2nd Thursday of the month. Your presence would make that meeting special too.

C.W. Gault, Secretary
