Tell A Friend
Branching Out!
by Connie Braceland
What has been the greatest part of jumping into the role of Club 50 Coordinator? Connecting with you!
While I can’t deny how thrilled I am to be heading to Hungary, Austria, and the Czech Republic for September’s Old World Prague & the Blue Danube trip, as well as to St. Thomas and St. Maarten for next January’s Ultimate Caribbean Cruise, I must admit I am fully enjoying introducing myself to Club 50 members and trading stories … and finding out how many friends we have in common.  
It’s also a treat to be connecting more with our area. During the Hidden Gardens of Beacon Hill tour as well as the sign-up for the Charles River Cruise, so many of us were laughing about how we never take advantage of all of the amazing places right in our own backyard.
Speaking of your own neighborhood, I know that not all of you live, work, shop, etc., right in Watertown Square, so stopping by the Club 50 headquarters in the atrium of the main branch to say hi isn’t the most convenient. So I’m coming to you! Yes, I’m going to “hit the road” for WSB branch visits: Please refer to the Save the Date section below to pick a date – and feel free to bring your friends! (Remember our Refer a Friend program: It’s easy! Just refer a friend to join Club 50 and we will give you a coupon for $25 toward one of our day trips.)
Also, both Karen and I are once again helping out at the WSB Customer Appreciation events, so there will always be someone to say hi to from Club 50 at the cookouts!
So I’m looking forward to connecting with you this summer!

Going Green

Connie (right, joined by Waverley Square Branch Manager Brenda Cancian) led her first official day trip as Club 50 Coordinator with the Hidden Gardens of Beacon Hill tour.
We were blessed with gorgeous weather to enjoy the 85th annual event, featuring a dozen green spaces in urban places of which most of us toured 10 or 11, with two ladies seeing all 12 (congratulations, Connie Andrews and Eileen Waldron)! Some of our favorites included a Pinckney Street multi-level terraced garden with climbing hydrangea, Japanese cedar, European ginger, and dwarf hosta, guarded by two large, 2,000-pound, brownstone foo dogs, as well as the expansive Annie Fields Garden on Charles River Square, communally maintained by the 14 households surrounding it and featuring a beautiful 100-year-old European linden tree shading lilies-of-the-valley.
We followed up that eye-pleasing, fragrant, and hardy walk with a relaxing and delicious lunch at nearby Skipjack’s. A truly delightful day!
