Dear Members and Friends:

Law Day 2019 was a smashing success with nearly 100 students representing 4 schools in attendance, and our first annual Robert E. Kenney, Jr. Mock Trial competition. Eternal gratitude and thanks go out to all who worked so tirelessly to make our event just as glittering as it always is. With Law Day officially behind us (until next year), that means we only have 2 more meetings before “summer vacation”!

The only way to improve on springtime in Plymouth is with a harbor side buffet at the Tavern on the Wharf on Wednesday, May 22, 2019, and that’s just what we are doing!! We will be showcasing a preview of plans for our upcoming golf tournament, so there will be no speaker. As usual, our good friends at the Tavern will be customizing a sumptuous buffet and offering it to our members and guests for the ridiculously low price of $37. If you’d like to join us for this lazy, laid back, late spring soirée, you know the drill!! Contact us on or before 5/20 either by telephone, email, candygram or messenger pigeon.    

Save The Dates: We have quite the year mapped out, so you’re going to want to make sure and mark the following dates in your calendars, daily planners, smartphones, tablets, laptops, BlackBerrys, desk blotters, or (in some cases) cell walls: June 13 (Golf Tournament), September 18, October 16, November 20 (Elections) and December 18 (Christmas Party). Venues and speakers will be announced as we get closer to those dates and our “people” finalize details with their “people” over lunch.  

Golf Tournament:  SAVE THE DATE!!! The Eighth Annual Mayflower Cup Golf Tournament will be held on Thursday, June 13, 2019 at the Indian Pond Country Club in Kingston!  The anticipated 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. Scholarships:  The Thomas P. Kramer Scholarships are awarded each year to local high school students continuing their education at the college level in areas associated with the law, the legal profession and law enforcement.  Last year three (3) $1,000 scholarships were awarded and we hope to continue to expand this program.  Simply put, we would like to increase our scholarship awards and make more of them!  In addition to our golf tournament we anticipate offering more 50/50 raffles throughout the year and we encourage our members to contribute their cash, time, labor and ideas to this great program.

PDBA Directory:  The PDBA Directory will be available for distribution to members at the June meeting.  This handy directory is for paid members and includes name, address, telephone, email and two (2) areas of specialty for each entry.  If you would like to be included in this directory your 2019 PDBA dues must be paid and you must be sure to provide your UP TO DATE contact information (including email), as well as your list of two (2) specialties, to Marshall Johnson 508-224-8700 (phone), 508-224-8737 (fax) or by responding to the PDBA email at plymouthdistrictbar@yahoo.com as soon as possible. PLEASE NOTE: Any member carrying outstanding balance (missed/cancelled meetings) must bring your account current to be eligible for inclusion in the directory. If you have any questions about your account status, please contact the resident penny pincher at 508-224-8700.

CANCELLATION POLICY: Lastly, please be reminded that the Plymouth District Bar Association is able to keep its membership benefits high and its costs low by maintaining a SLIM financial margin of error. It is for this reason that we have recently implemented a new policy, effective January 1, 2019: specifically if you find you are unable to attend a meeting after having made a reservation, it is IMPERATIVE that you contact one of the PDBA officers or Directors no later than 48-hours beforehand, otherwise you may be required to spin up the combination to your wallets, free the moths and bring yourselves flush with America’s Oldest Bar Association.  

Regards,

PDBA
