On the Go � in Our Own Backyard
by Connie Braceland
We love to be busy here at Club 50 -- but not just with trips!
 
As you saw in last month’s eNewsletter with the Waltham Food & Wine Festival, we are starting to offer more Club 50 discounts for local events; in fact, we have another one for you – check it out in the “Save the Date” section!
 
We’re also working with Sandy Penchansky, CFP®, Financial Advisor with Infinex Investments, Inc., located at Watertown Savings Bank, on a spring seminar, based on your survey results from this year’s Travel Seminar. We’re hoping for a late April date, so please keep a close eye on your next eNewsletter!
 
We have our first Advisory Board meeting of 2014 later this month, where we’ll be exploring ideas for special treats for 2015, Club 50’s 20th anniversary!
 
So there are lots of reasons to stay tuned!
 
But don’t worry, we’re still focused on travel: Our Advisory Board meeting will mainly review proposals for our two big trips for 2015. We’ll keep you updated!
 
And we’re still inviting members to join us on our second “Northern California’s Finest” trip, August 14-23. So check your summer calendar … then give us a call!

North End Market Tour
Date: Thursday, May 8, 2014

First day of Signup: Tuesday, March 25, 2014
Price: $87 Members   $97 Guests
Walkability: strenuous: ability to move quickly over uneven terrains for longer periods of time.

[FULL STORY]
This Discount Has �Taste�!

If you consider yourself a foodie, then by all means mark your calendar for Thursday, May 1, and join the Watertown-Belmont Chamber of Commerce for Taste of the Towns! The WBCC’s annual food festival showcasing signature dishes, luscious desserts, and savory wines from many local restaurants and businesses in the community and surrounding area will be held at the Hellenic Cultural Center, 25 Bigelow Avenue in Watertown, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. The price for all the fun, as well as music and raffles? Same as last year: $20 – but only $15 for Club 50 members! Please call the Club 50 office for ticket details.

Pops Goes the Rose!

It’s not too hard to imagine Charlie Rose with a baton, is it? It certainly wasn’t for The Arts Foundation of Cape Cod: They recently announced the award-winning journalist and broadcaster will be the Celebrity Guest Conductor for the 29th annual Pops by the Sea concert on August 10. Club 50 will be heading to the Hyannis Village Green event, which has been named one of the American Bus Association's Top 100 Events in North America for the year 2014. (This is the third time that Pops by the Sea has received this distinction also earning a spot on the ABA's list in 2011 and 2012.)

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