    Built in 1890 by the Knights of Pythius, this three-story structure was renovated by a local business woman in 2017 to become a 12 room inn. The owner/operator, Kimberlee Davidson, will be there to give us a guided tour and provide us with full color brochures. There is a lift for those uncomfortable with climbing stairs. We'll be enjoying lunch at the Whitling Whimsy Cafe, 107 E. Main, Casey, before the tour. Let us know if you can attend either or both gatherings.

    Brighton Beach Memoirs 

    By Neil Simon

    Directed by J. Kevin Doolen

    Brighton Beach Memoirs is part one of Neil Simon's autobiographical trilogy: a portrait of the writer as a young teen in 1937 living with his family in a crowded, lower middle-class Brooklyn walk-up. Eugene Jerome, standing in for the author, is the narrator and central character. Dreaming of baseball and girls, Eugene must cope with the mundane existence of his family life in Brooklyn: formidable mother, overworked father, and his worldly older brother Stanley. Throw into the mix his widowed Aunt Blanche, her two young (but rapidly aging) daughters and you have a recipe for hilarity, served up Simon-style. This bittersweet memoir evocatively captures the life of a struggling Jewish household where, as his father states "if you didn't have a problem, you wouldn't be living here."

    On April 26, 1952, a guard ship, the USS HOBSON, collided with a larger aircraft carrier, the USS WASP. The HOBSON split completely in two and, in less than 4 minutes, descended into the cold Atlantic water. On that dark and moonless night, 175 US Navy Sailors and their Captain were thrust brutally to the bottom of the ocean where they rest in eternal sleep. Sixty-one survivors of the HOBSON were rescued by the heroic efforts of sailors serving on the accompanying ship, the RODMAN, and on the WASP which had a huge gaping hole in her bow. This book is being written at the request of the son of one of the sailors serving on the HOBSON who died that night. This young sailor was one of the 176 who never got to go home, never experienced family again. He didn’t get to hold the child he was expecting nor care for him as he was growing up. Many stories have been shared by the survivors and witnesses of this catastrophe. This is an account of an error in judgment which resulted in a tragedy met by those who serve with competent action, integrity, kindness, and reverence for those who serve.
