Who's Ready for Spring?
by Joan Galgay

Don’t envy me too much for completely missing out on Superstorm Nemo!
I don’t know how it happened (and I hope it did for many of you too), but I managed to pick the perfect four days for a mini-escape to Florida this month. So you can’t blame me for going back for even longer next month, can you? (If I’m not in when you call or stop by, Karen will be happy to assist you.)
But you know how much I also love it when you can escape with me! So far there are a few dozen of you who are good at long-range planning … or who have already had enough of this winter … and already signed up for our 10 Night Ultimate Caribbean Cruise (plus one night in Ft. Lauderdale) January 30-February 10, 2014. We understand from Ruth Rudnick, who’s coordinating the trip for us through her Travel Showcase company in Belmont, that she has less than a dozen cabins left, so don’t miss out on joining us on the Celebrity Equinox for this incredible deal that includes your air, group tour excursions on each island (St. Thomas, St. Kitts, Barbados, Dominica, St. Maarten), trip insurance, gratuities, taxes and fees, air and ship transfers, and even a cocktail party just for us. Please find the reservation form and details on the Club 50 page. I’m also very happy to hear how pleased you are with Ruth. We are in very good hands with her.
We’re also anxious to start our one-day escapes, with our Upper Deck Trolley Tour of Boston Wednesday, April 3. We’ll have a treat that day since the custom-built, high-riding trolley can come directly to the American Legion Post 440 to pick us up, so no hopping on and off a regular motorcoach to and from our special tour. Of course, with our family style luncheon feast at Massimino’s in the North End after our 2 1/2-hour tour, we may wish to jog home! Please see the day’s itinerary below and the signup form on the left.
For the rest of our 2013 plans, please refer to the Save the Dates section below, since we have made a few updates from last month’s eNewsletter. And in between eNewsletters, please feel free to check the Club 50 page for any other updates. You never know when we’ll have something new for you!

A Star Is Born!

How long does it take to create 60 seconds of TV time? Oh, only about 60 minutes!
Waltham customers may have seen Joan on their local cable access channel! Recently a pair of WCAC-TV cameramen visited the Club 50 office to film her for a spotlight on Newswatch,airtime that Watertown Savings Bank receives for being a show sponsor.
From the lovely setting of the atrium lounge here at the Main Office, Joan explained what Club 50 is all about, and then the cameramen asked her to move to her office where she overviewed upcoming trips – including our 2014 Ultimate Caribbean Cruise -- with a new Club 50 member: So who was the camera-ready good sport? You most likely recognized him – Tom Coxall, our Lending Specialist, who’s very active in the Waltham community!
The spotlight ran in late January and early February, but if you missed it or you don’t have access to WCAC-TV, don’t despair: You can catch it on the WSB website – and see if you’re in any of the photos showcased in the short!

Tell us what you think -- and have a chance to win!
