The Greater Milwaukee Area Society of American Magicians wishes everyone Happy Holidays. Assembly 61 is excited to announce that Wednesday December 19th is our annual Holiday party held at our normal meeting place Dicken's Grille.
This year magician John Sturk Regional Vice-President of the National S.A.M. will be honoring us with his presence. Master Magician John Sturk will be presenting a lecture and performance presentation for all.
Beginning as a busker in a remote town in northern Michigan, John Sturk is a co-founder of the Chicago Magic Lounge, the biggest and most exciting magic project in the Midwest, and possibly, the country. John will discuss his journey from street performance, to restaurants, to private parties, and finally to the Lounge. He also spent seven years as a project coordinator for FUN, Incorporated, America's largest magic manufacturer, is a producer for street performance at the Abbott's Get-Together, and currently serves as Midwest Regional Vice-President of the Society of American Magicians.
In addition, to John Sturk's lecture and performance, Tom Weber will be presenting a short history of the club with Assembly 61 will be providing a food buffet (Italian beef and taco bar) , gift exchanges and more surprises. This is one event that should not be missed if you are in the area. You do not have to be a member of S.A.M 61 to attend. It is open to all magicians and spouses who are interested in learning about Assembly 61, who would enjoy the lecture, and the food buffet.
If you are interested in attending, it would be nice to hear from you, so we can estimate the amount of food and refreshments that will be required. Assembly 61 will be taking photographs and conducting interviews with attendee's because we are writing a feature article for the MUM magazine featuring John Sturk and The Greater Milwaukee Area Society of American Magicians Assembly 61. Hopefully, the feature will make the cover of a future MUM magazine issue.
See you Wednesday the 19th!
