Greetings Club 50 members! Now that you have received the Bank’s letter about the Club 50 transition, please allow me to introduce myself.
I have been with Watertown Savings Bank since late 2007, so I already know how much this group loves to enjoy life, have fun, make friends, and support each other. In fact, I have had the opportunity to join Joan and Karen for three wonderful day trips: The completely relaxing and delicious luncheon in the Spring of ’09 at the Salem Cross Inn in West Brookfield, Mass., complete with an apple pie baking demonstration and piano playing; the highly entertaining Summer ‘09 concert watching Angie Dickinson – and her big white hat -- play guest conductor at the 24th annual “Pops by the Sea” on the Hyannis Village Green; and the beautiful Fall ’10 tour of New Hampshire’s Canterbury Shaker Village and McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center.
I also met nearly 40 of you just a few weeks ago on the first of Club 50’s two trips to New Orleans. It was so much fun chatting with you over the local delicacies of beignets, café au laits, and muffulettas, as well as discovering the sights and sounds of Jackson Square, the Cajun Man Swamp Tour, the National World War II Museum, and Oak Alley Plantation with you.
I just met the Advisory Board a few days ago, as we got together to talk about how we’re doing on the rest of this year’s trips and to brainstorm about what could be in store for next year in addition to our Ultimate Caribbean Cruise.
And, of course, I’ve been with you at Club 50’s annual holiday parties as one of the many employee volunteers who help with that event. (Please see our “Save the Date” section below for a holiday party surprise!)
So I’m very excited to be managing your club, planning trips and other special treats for you, and, most of all, having the chance to get to know you all better! Please stop by and say hello. Let me know if there is anything I can do for you. My door is always open!
