Truly, it has been shown that the Club is resourceful. Al Levy gives personal attention to arranging the commissary for our outings, and spends several days away from his own business, for all of which he makes no charge. The custom of having cocktails before our dinners originated years ago. Those who attended will remember when we used to meet in a long, narrow room, created by opening doors of several smaller rooms in the upstairs part of Jerry Illich's old place on North Main Street. It was a dreary night and arrivals slow when it was proposed that four or five gathered have an appetizer. The order was given, but by the time it arrived others were present, and an additional order was given. This was repeated three or four times and the total reached some twenty cocktails. There was great merriment at the situation, and much friendly banter, which finally found its adjustment in the drinks being charged up to the meeting. Later, the after-dinner cigars, and sometimes cordials, were added to the dinner offering. The Sunset Club, consistent with its real family spirit, has sought to avoid publicity as to its affairs, and the privacy of opinion expressed at its meetings has never been seriously violated.
