Tell A Friend
Tune In to Our New Contest!
by Connie Braceland
Is there anything better than traveling? Having recently returned from a fantastic jaunt to Australia, Singapore, and Brunei with my husband Timothy, it’s so inspiring to experience landscapes, architecture, food, and music so different than your own everyday life.

And I know that travel also inspires you! On a recent trip, Club 50 travelers were inspired to think of a theme song for our group. Can you guess the most popular choice? "On the Road Again"!

But, of course, we need our own special lyrics! And we know there is a lot of creativity within our membership, so we thought we would have some fun with it and turn it into the Club 50 Theme Song Contest! You will have the summer to get those creative juices flowing: The deadline to have your lyrics to us isn’t until Friday, August 29. More details will follow when we announce the winner. So have fun and do your best to keep it clean!

Speaking of songs, we have another Club 50 Member Exclusive Discount for you! Singing for the City, the Rotary Club of Waltham’s 7th Annual Karaoke Night, is Waltham’s version of American Idol! The fundraising event will be held Friday, June 6, at the American Legion Hall in Waltham (215 Waverly Oaks Road), with doors open at 6 and performances starting at 7. The winners – judged by local celebrities – will receive a $200 cash prize for first place, an overnight stay at the Westin Hotel for second place, and a $50 gift card at the Chateau Restaurant for third place. And possible winnings for you are from over a dozen raffle gift baskets featuring overnight stays in hotels, wine, jewelry, and a whole lot more. A cash bar is available. Ticket price is regularly $15 in advance and at the door -- but if you purchase your ticket in advance at the Club 50 office, the Club 50 Member price is only $10. So come and join Karen and I for the fun – and guess which one of us sings!

PLEASE NOTE: Relay for Life Update
Many of you have been asking if Watertown Savings Bank is having its annual fundraiser at the Hellenic Center for our WSB-Banking on a Cure Relay for Life team. We are not having it this year, but if you would still like to help us help the American Cancer Society for its May 31 event at Victory Field in Watertown, WSB has generously offered to match all of our donations up to $5,000. No donation is too small and all donations are tax deductible. We appreciate your help! To donate, please go to:

Champagne Truffles for Everyone!

A little rain doesn’t stop Club 50 from having fun! We made the most of a Saturday in Boston in late April, taking in the uniqueness that is the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, including their new wing with its acoustically perfect Calderwood Hall. We had lunch at Amrheins, a South Boston tradition since 1890 (featuring the oldest hand-carved bar in America and the first draft beer pump in Boston), then nibbled our way down Newbury Street for The Boston Chocolate Walking Tour, including the decadent Teuscher Chocolates and the wacky & wonderful Robin’s Candy shop, as well as DeLuca’s Market, Pinkberry, and nearby Gourmet Boutique.

Isn�t That Grand?

Thank you to all of the Club 50 members who responded to our “Preferred Park-ing?” question from the April newsletter: In honor of Earth Day on April 22, which is your favorite of the Top 10 National Parks most-visited in 2013?
