Membership Renewal

THE AGRA TREASURERS is the Sherlock Holmes literary society of Dayton. Nationally, we’re best known as the sponsors of “Holmes, Doyle, & Friends” (hereafter HD&F), a conference about things Victorian in general and Holmesian in particular that began in 1981. Please click on the “About Us” and “HD&F” tabs at the top of the page for more information. Locally, we usually meet every other month for luncheon or dinner at a restaurant in the area or a member’s residence. In the Summer, we frequently also have a picnic, as we did in June 2019. Our next meeting should have been the HD&F Conference in late March, but this was canceled because of the epidemic. The HD&F page gives more information.

​New members are always welcome!
