Tom’s Demotion Dinner will be a rescheduled meeting at 6:30 next Wednesday, June 27, at the Rock Bottom Brewery. We’ll have a special meal prepared by the restaurant, which we hope will alleviate the tears that come with the passing of yet another year. At least the wine will be special, so get there by 6 or so if you want to have some.

But the main reason to be there is to thank Tom for the fantastic job he has done during difficult times and to give Jerry our full support. The king is “dead”: long live the king.
