I know I’m not the only one “suffering” from the summer’s end travel bug: From the buzz all summer we expect to have a very popular first-day signup today
on The Corvettes Doo Wop Revue
set for Thursday, September 5
(previewed in last month’s eNewsletter). And we are sold out
on our Castle in the Clouds
trip, coming up August 21. Thanks to all of you who will be taking advantage of that panoramic view from the New Hampshire mountaintop mansion. Make sure to take lots of pictures for me! I’m sorry I won’t be joining you for what should be an incredible excursion, but that’s the day my husband Tim and I are leaving for … Poland! Yes, we had made plans to visit Warsaw and Krakow several months before I was privileged to take on the role of Club 50 Coordinator.
So Karen will be in charge that day, and she will have trusty helpers Ron Le Santo, who has been on numerous trips with us, along with Lorraine Anastos, our Nonantum Branch Manager. Karen will also be on hand to take your reservation forms for two additional first-day sign-up opportunities this month: August 22nd’s Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story at Ogunquit Playhouse on Thursday, October 17 (please see the Save the Date and Forms sections) and August 26th’s Vermont adventure Monday-Wednesday, October 21-23 (please refer to the Club 50 Opportunities and Forms sections).
We’ll also be jumping away from Club 50 headquarters several more times this month: We’re winding down our branch visits, so come see us from 2-4 p.m. tomorrow, Friday August 9, at the Arlington Branch (980 Massachusetts Avenue), or next Thursday, August 15 at the Lexington Branch (1075 Waltham Street). Additionally, we’re helping at the Customer Appreciation cookouts Friday, August 16 at the Waltham Center Branch (6 Lexington Street), Friday, August 23 at the Warrendale Branch (739 Main Street, Watertown), and Friday, September 6 at the East Watertown Branch (10 Bigelow Avenue). Finally, we’re participating in the Waltham Council on Aging’s annual Health and Resource Fair on Tuesday, August 27 at the Embassy Suites Hotel, 550 Winter Street in Waltham. Stop by between 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
And hopefully we’re not teasing you too much, but the Advisory Board meeting I referred to in last month’s “The Latest” has brought us a few steps closer to 2014 trips. Our hint for the second big trip of 2014? California Dreamin’! As for overnight trips? New York City is still receiving a big thumbs-up, and we have several requests for either Saratoga Springs or West Point. Day trips? There’s lots of interest in a new museum in downtown Boston, the next Pops by the Sea in Hyannis, and a little something involving the Red Sox. We’ll put more concrete plans in place when we meet again in the fall.
But as always, we’re open to your suggestions! Feel free to email, call, or stop by the office – or come and see us at one of the many events listed above.
