Limousine Service
Is Stretching Itself

DANNY RASKIN

Local Columnist

C

ullan Meathe, presi-
dent of Statewide
Limousine Service,
looks out over his vast fleet of
18 new stretch Caddies and
town cars, eight passenger
vans and six sedans . . . from
a 22,000-square-foot building
in the old Packard plant .. .
Ironically, this is where
Cullan's grandfather, William
Meathe, used to get Col.
Russell Alger's Packard
limousine serviced years
back.
When visiting dignitaries,
celebrities, show biz stars,
Fortune 500 executives, etc.
come to Detroit, many want
those big stretch limos to cart
them around . . . The one best
known to them because it is
Michigan's largest . . . and a
three-generation operation is
Statewide.
Cullan's father, Howard
Meathe, was chauffeuring
while putting himself
through school . . . and today
is a consultant with Cullan
and the company.
Show biz stars are a biggie
with Statewide Limousine
Service . . . and many folks
can say they sat in the same
seat as Frank Sinatra, etc.
Major rock and roll groups
use Cullan's services . . . (Na-
tional Concert Transporta-
tion is a subsidiary of his) and
his cars and employees travel
from city to city with the acts
so they can rely on one corn-
pany and same personnel.
Quite a success story .. .
from third generation chauf-
feur . . . to limo provider for
the stars . . . or anyone who
wants to use his services .. .
which is becoming nationally
known.
Cullan is only 25 years old.
TOMORROW evening is
expo and auction by
Sisterhood of Temple Beth El
on Telegraph . . . Prevue 7:30
and auction 8:30 . . . $5 dona-
tion . . . coffee and cakes, wine
and cheese.
Molly Abraham, restaurant
critic/reviewer of Detroit Free
Press . . . and Ed Chasteen of
Sylvia Lee Desserts, will be
featured by Temple Beth El
Sisterhood at its luncheon,
Jan. 25 . . . ($3.50 members,
$4 guests.)
TALK ABOUT matchmak-
ing . . . how about this Singles
Extension Group hereabouts?
In March it will celebrate the
seventh marriage of folks who
have met within year-old club
. . . Ann Sak and Bernie Kan-
tor, next to have an "I Do"

affair, met last Feb. 21 at one
of the Singles Extension
Group's many shindigs.
Next event by this very pro-
gressive bunch of guys 'n gals,
50 and over, which has grown
to a whopping 350, is Feb. 14
. . . It is sponsored by Temple
Israel . . . Mel Hirsch is
president.
50-YEAR reunion of Nor-
thern High being sought by
Annabelle (Kort) Stark is for
January and June 1938
classes . . . Annabelle lives at
2805 Mason, Port Huron,
Mich. 48060.
TEN-YEAR reunion by
Southfield High is set for Nov.
26 at Northfield Hilton .. .
Contact Gary Lichtman,
642-7444, or Denise Bartlett,
517-546-7627.
SECOND YEAR in a row
that the recent Chocolate
Jubilee by Alzheimer's
Disease & Related Disorders
Association was a huge suc-
cess . . . In fact, it far surpass-
ed even last year's biggie .. .
Public education is crucial if
the battle against this
devastating disease is to be
won.
LOOKING BACK on col-
umns of yesteryears .. .
NOV. 28, 1947 . . . "During
Sunday School classes, Carl
Storman asked his group of
small boys, 'Who led the
children of Israel into Ca-
naan?' . . . None of the
youngsters volunteered an
answer . . . Carl pointed to a
lad sitting next to the front
and asked him to tell who led
the children of Israel into Ca-
naan . . . and the youth
replied, 'It wasn't me, Mr.
Storman, 'cause I just moved
here last week.' "
I LIKE . . . that sign in Dr.
Lawrence Haber's office .. .
about not having to floss your
teeth . . . only the ones you
want to keep.
PERCY KAPLAN'S Dept.
. . . "A young Israeli lieute-
nant on his first assignment
was marching his platoon on
maneuvers. He gave the com-
mand to march toward a cliff.
The soldiers were coming
dangerously close to the edge,
but no order came from the
lieutenant. Finally, in
desperation, one of them
shouted, 'Lieutenant, sir, if
you can't say 'halt,' at least
say 'goodbye!' "

GOOD WAITRESS Dept.
. . . Cindy Shimmell . . . at the
new Dudley's on W. Huron in
Pontiac, Wednesday through
Saturday evenings . . . very
knowledgeable, personable
and efficient.
