Message from Connie
by Connie Braceland
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!

'Tis the Season for ... the Westin!

The Club 50 Advisory Board knows. Those of you who have gone on our trips so far this year know too. Now it’s time to share the news with all of you! This year’s Club 50 holiday parties will be held at The Waltham Westin Hotel. We’re excited to make merry with you at a new locale, and from the initial reaction we have received, you are too! So keep either Wednesday, December 4 or 11 in mind, and before you know it, it will be early October and you’ll be seeing that holiday party invite.

'What's Kickin', Chicken?'

Did you know that’s one of the ways New Orleans locals greet each other? Our local tour guide was full of fun facts like that as Club 50 made its big splash in The Big Easy with two groups, each enjoying a week of delights in the French Quarter from the surprisingly tranquil Maison Dupuy Hotel. Connie and Karen escorted the first group of 41 of us who started checking out “The City that Care Forgot” on April 15, and we tried to leave a few beignets and po’ boys for Ron’s group of 17 who arrived on April 22.
(Picture perfect in the palms: From left to right, front: Gerri Aniello and Ron LeSanto; second row: Vickie Sampson, Ann Calabro, Luciana Fionda, Betty Marano, Martha Rotondi, Kitty & Sal Tulipano; third row: Marion Tierney, Maureen Mello, Trudi Murphy, Pat Acton; back row: Donna Pellegrini, Jerry Paone, Art Andrade, Joe Anastasi.)
