      Bix Beiderbecke, the jazz genius from Davenport, Iowa, died on August
      6, 1931. Every year, a group of Bixophiles gathers in front of Bix's
      last residence to pay tribute to his musical legacy. Paul Maringelli
      organizes the event and sends the following invitation.

      The memorial for this jazz pioneer will be held on Saturday, August 4,
      2007 at the building where he lived his last days.

      It will begin at 6:00 pm
      at 43-12 46th (Bliss) Street, Sunnyside (Queens), NY
      (The All Saints Churchyard)
      With guest speakers and exhibits

      Featuring the music of Bix Beiderbecke performed by
      The Sunnyside Memorial Jazz Orchestra,

      A candlelight vigil will follow

      You are cordially invited to attend this annual community event. Bring
      a guest or two!
      Hope you are able to attend!

      Paul Maringelli, Chairman

      I hope as many of you within driving or subway distance will make it.
      I live in Eastern Long Island. I take the LIRR to Woodside and then
      the # 7.
