can Heart Association.

lor's degree in chemistry

SOMERSET INN
GIVES YOU
AN OCCASION
WORTH
CELEBRATING.

The Somerset Inn opens
in mid-June. Reservations
are now being accepted.

bor Zionist Alliance, said the
program will include appro-
priate readings in Yiddish
and in celebration of the 25th
anniversary of the state of
Israel by Mrs. Morris Fried-
man. There also will be com-
munity singing and refresh-
ments. Tickets will be avail-
able at the door. For infor-
mation, call the LZA office,
851-1606.

In mid-June, the Somerset Inn will be opening its
doors —and offering its hospitality—to the public.
We can think of no time more appropriate, for
June is traditionally a month for auspicious
beginnings and celebrations.
And we think you'll find our opening worthy
of your celebrations as well. Even now our staff is
being carefully trained to look after those small
but important details that spell the difference
between "just another party" and a truly
memorable event. Our catering menu, too, has
been planned with the sophisticated host or
hostess in mind. It is one of the most extensive of
its kind, allowing you to express your good taste
in anything from hors d'oeuvres to multi-course
dinners. Our elegant facilities can
accommodate groups of any size — from 6 to
600, and our location, adjacent to the exclusive
Somerset Mall in Troy, is one of the most
fashionable in Michigan.
For weddings, Bar Mitzvahs, reunions,
anniversaries — any happy celebration, come to
Somerset Inn.
