We are required to wear masks at all times in the Club except when at a table, eating and drinking. We also respectfully ask everyone to adhere to social distancing guidelines.

*Because of Covid-19, we do not have our normal flexibility. Merion Cricket Club requires a list of attendees in advance. Accordingly, they do not allow walk-ins. We are limited to 21 attendees; assure your place by sending a cheque as soon as possible. After we reach the cap, we shall have a waiting list. If you need to cancel, you must do so by Monday, November 9. If you cancel after that date, your cheque will be deposited unless we can replace you with someone on the waiting list. In the event that MCC must cancel the event because of Covid-19, your cheque will not be deposited. 

Mr. Tillery is a partner at Troutman Pepper (formerly Pepper Hamilton). His practice covers a broad range of Intellectual Property Litigation in State and Federal Courts throughout the country. Often called “MR. SEARCH AND SEIZURE,” Mr. Tillery is a nationally-known authority, speaker, and author in Intellectual Property Litigation. Originally from Louisiana, our speaker has a JD from the University of Pennsylvania and a BA from Swarthmore. Kelly helped his father edit and publish Well and Smartly Done, an account of his experiences during World War II as a combat marine and Japanese translator. There will be a book-singing after the talk for those attendees that may wish to buy it.

Spouses, adult children, and friends are cordially invited to hear what will be a lively and informative talk. We especially encourage you to invite guests that may qualify as Hereditary or Veteran Companions of The Pennsylvania Commandery.
