NOTICES: Henry "Hank" W. Keves recently died suddenly of a heart attack. He was only 56 years old. He kept quite busy with his neighborhood business Dew Drop Inn, but managed to get to the Scarab Club for many events. He was a delight to talk to about the Club as he spent hours pouring through piles of Detroit newspaper articles about the Scarab Club in its heyday. (I will print some of theses articles when I can.) He will be missed by his family and friends. We send our condolences. Barbara Eaton of Woodhaven also passed away this month. Our sympathy to her family and friends. Memorial 3/9, 2-4pm. Chelsea, Ml. Call 616-382-2144

Page 3 NOTE from the VICE PRESIDENT: I wish to thank all of those who have contributed to the Scarab Club Fire Fly Fund. Those of you who have sent in your response card with a check need a big THANK YOU. If you have not responded, you may still do so. It seems we are always talking about our aging building, and that can get very annoying.. .but we must remember that the Scarab Club is made up of wonderful, talented, interesting artists, and patrons of culture. The Membership IS the Scarab Club! Let us not lose sight of the fact that we must have a house that accommodates our members, and the many events and activities that give us our identity. Our House needs repair and updating.
Please send in your Scarab Club Fire Fly Fund card.
With great respect, Irene Will, VP
