It was snowing outside before author Terry Shaffer started his presentation at an East Toledo Club luncheon, and at first it looked like nobody would show up because of the weather.
Shaffer was there to talk about his 146-page book, Illegal Gambling Clubs of Toledo: The Chips, The Dice, The Places and Faces.
By the time he had finished, the room was full, and these were not the same East Toledo members that usually show up for these monthly luncheons.
