Dear Member:

Our March meeting at Station 8 was a rousing success with over 40 members and guests in attendance. We were joined by numerous dignitaries including the Honorable Judge Boyle, the Honorable Stephen Steinberg (Ret.) and the Honorable James Sullivan as well as the usual smattering of past presidents (you know who you are). A special thank you to Jason McCall of the Veteran’s Outreach Program for informing us about a worthwhile program for our veterans who are facing criminal charges and other non-criminal court involvement. Also, we want to extend our gratitude to David Crest and Station Eight for great service and great food.

O ur next meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 3, 2017 at Blackstone’s at the Indian Pond Country Club, 60 Country Club Way, Kingston, MA (781) 585-9117 and will follow our 9th Annual Law Day celebration (see details below). The PDBA is honored to have as our guest speaker Attorney Dean Strang of Netflix’s “Making a Murderer”. You won’t want to miss what he has to regale us with on this nationally popular series!!

As usual, our world famous social hour will commence at approximately 5:00 p.m. and will include gourmet hors d’oeuvres as well as a cash bar and social bonhomie. A buffet dinner will follow at approximately 7:00 p.m. Our buffet will include sliced sirloin beef with demi-glaze or horseradish sauce, bow tie pasta with pink vodka sauce, classic caesar salad, roasted lyonnaise red bliss potatoes and warm rolls with butter. We will also be treated to carrot cake, coffee and tea. The price for this very special banquet will be a mere $45.00 per person IF you make your reservation and PAY BEFORE April 19, 2017. The price thereafter will be $50.00 per person. If you would like to join us as we celebrate Law Day, please contact us ASAP as we anticipate this event will be sold out! You may contact one of the officers, the PDBA email (plymouthdistrictbar@yahoo.com) or call Marshall Johnson at 508-224-8700.

Additionally, we are seeking extra donations to offset the additional costs related to Attorney Strang’s appearance, so if you would like to pitch in please forward your check to the PDBA, P.O. Box 3022, Plymouth, MA 02361.

Law Day: This year’s Law Day celebration, which also coincides with the PDBA monthly meeting, will be held on Wednesday, May 3, 2017. We expect events will commence at approximately 9:30 a.m. and will continue throughout the day at the Plymouth Trial Court, 52 Obery Street, Plymouth, MA. Events are expected to include a mock trial, courthouse tours, displays of our legal heritage, and a seminar for attorneys. (See attached flyer)

Save the Dates: Please mark the following 2017 PDBA meeting dates on your smart phones, tablets, pocket diaries and, if necessary, cell walls: May 31, June 14 (Golf Tournament), September 27, October 25, November 15 (Elections) and December 13 (Christmas Party).

Golf Tournament: This year’s Sixth Annual Mayflower Cup Golf Tournament is “Hitting the Road” and will be held on June 14, 2017 at the Indian Pond Country Club! The cost per person will be $130.00 and this includes cart rental, greens fees,18 holes of golf and a fabulous buffet dinner!! Not to mention all of the various prizes, raffles and giveaways to be had. So, get your foursomes ready, polish those irons and wash your balls! The PDBA hopes to raise significant funds to continue to grow its scholarship program.

Lastly please be reminded that the Plymouth District Bar Association is able to keep its membership benefits high and it costs low by maintaining a slim financial margin of error. Therefore if the vicissitudes of life intervene and you find that you are unable to attend a meeting after having made a reservation and the PDBA is charged for your meal we reserve the right to ask you to pony up the added expense.

Very truly yours,


 

PDBA
