Mackinac Island featuring The Grand Hotel and the Tulip Festival

Tell A Friend
Get Set for a Grand (Hotel) Time!
by Connie Braceland
Are we keeping you busy?
First, a final reminder: Enter the Club 50 Theme Song Contest! Try your hand at writing Club 50-related lyrics to the classic tune “On the Road Again.” We have members who have turned it into a fun group effort, so get together with some friends and give it a try! The deadline is Friday, August 29. And yes, there will be prizes … and a performance (or two) down the road?!
Second, a special trip announcement: Mackinac Island featuring The Grand Hotel and the Tulip Festival! This island and resort area has been on the Club 50 wish list for several years, so we’re excited to be going during Club 50’s 20th anniversary in 2015 – May 1 through 8. We are holding a special presentation and sign-up on September 18. Please see the “Club 50 Opportunities” column for details on that event as well as the itinerary and the reservation form.
In addition to our special plans, we are also happily busy with trips: Just this week was Sunday’s Pops by the Sea in Hyannis (with guest conductor Charlie Rose and brunch at Dan’l Webster Inn), today’s first-day-sign-up for Kringle Candle in Bernardston (with lunch at the Farm Table Restaurant at Kringle), and Thursday we’re off to San Francisco to start our 10-day Northern California’s Finest trip for August. (Our September Northern California trip is September 25-October 4.) Karen and I will have been back just a few days before our other first-day sign-up this month, on Tuesday, August 26, for the October 25 & 26 WaterFire Providence overnight. We’ve received a lot of good early buzz from you about WaterFire, so we’re looking forward to taking a big group to this great event!
And one more note: Karen and I will once again be helping out at the Waltham Council on Aging’s annual Health and Resource Fair on Thursday, August 28 at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Waltham (550 Winter Street). Come see us between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.!

A Summer Day on Columbia Point

Hail to the Chief?! Connie Danielson and daughter Jane graciously posed for a “photo op” while touring the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum on Club 50’s July 20 day trip. We were blessed with an utterly gorgeous day, following up our leisurely self-guided tour (which included the new temporary display featuring the Hyannisport Golf Cart, home movies, and artifacts depicting JFK’s love for golf, sailing, and Cape Cod) with a Sunday Brunch Cruise aboard The Odyssey, in which we enjoyed another view of the Museum while lounging on the top deck.
(See more photos of this trip and several others by clicking on WSB Photo Album in red on the left. Are you on Facebook? Just find us at Watertown Savings Bank-Massachusetts.)
