Congratulations to this newly married couple exiting Fishtown as I arrived.
The International Coffee Club of America, Leland Coffee Club, held it’s last sip this morning at the Leland Fire House. It’s next sip will be Monday morning at the Leland Lodge. The club was organized on March 4th, 1964 and has no by-laws, no officers, no dues and met 6 days a week except for national holidays or elections. In 1974 Charles Kuralt and a crew of 5 spent 3 days making a 7 minute film for TV’s “On The Road” I remember in the early days when it was standing room only for some. I believe the official count of sippers totaled 493,394. Thanks to Lee Bowen for filling in for me.
