Meeting Tonight! Intergalactic Voting for Tilden as Club of the Year!

Don’t forget tonight’s meeting! The agenda has been revised to include a discussion of next year’s annual dinner and a decision on the date and location. We will be meeting at Seafarer’s Institute (123 East 15th Street at Irving Place) starting at 7:30. The meeting will be followed by festive munchies and libations courtesy of the Hospitality Committee. Department of Consumer Affairs Commissioner Julie Menin is our guest speaker and will be there to kick off the meeting.

Petitioning! Please bring any completed petitions to the meeting. You’ll be able to hand in your other petitions later, but bring any that you have so that we can start binding them. And do not forget that Time-Tested Tllden Tradition … the member who brings the most signatures wins a free ticket to the Annual Dinner!

If you need signatures, we’ll be petitioning today (Thursday) at Morton Williams (23rd Street near 2nd Avenue) starting at 4:30.

We will also be petitioning at the following times/locations:

Monday June 22 – 5 pm Hane (20th and First)

Friday June 26 – 5 pm Stuy Town (16th at First)

Monday June 29 – 5 pm Stuy Town (16th at First)

Remember the hysteria at last year’s Demmy’s when our own Louise Dankberg took control of the stage at the Apollo? Well, it could happen again! The Demmy’s – the intergalactically-acclaimed New York County Democratic Committee annual wing-ding and award show – is back on Monday July 13. If you are interested in attending please speak with Louise Dankberg at the meeting or contact her ASAP via email at 

Perhaps the most important item in this eblast is this: Nominate Tilden as the “Club of the Year” at the Wuith enough votes we can win! We were close last year and your vote will push us to the top!

Warmest Regards,

Mark P. Thompson
