Tell A Friend
California, Here We Come � Again!
by Connie Braceland

When it comes to Club 50, two times is the charm!

Karen and I had a fantastic time with nearly 30 of our Club 50 members and guests who joined us on our August “Northern California’s Finest” adventure.
We kicked off with the man-made wonders like San Francisco’s famous Golden Gate Bridge (see the Featured Photo section) and cable cars, then enjoyed the wine country of Napa and Sonoma with the splendidly elegant Napa Valley Wine Train and the sparkling wines at the Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards. Then came the national parks’ mountains and sequoias! It was utterly breathtaking to take in the Half Dome and El Capitan at Yosemite National Park, the General Sherman in Sequoia National Park and the General Grant in Kings Canyon National Park.
We also can’t forget gorgeous Lake Tahoe, historic Virginia City, the one-of-a kind 17- Mile Drive, the clam chowder sampling in Monterey … there’s just too much to mention! But we had a fun group who enjoyed delicious food and wine, great accommodations – and quite the bear sighting during breakfast at Yosemite Valley Lodge!  
And we’re lucky to have the rare opportunity to be even more helpful to our customers in September – the 40-plus who are taking the same trip near the end of this month! So we’ll pack a few more jackets and sweaters to brave that cool San Francisco coast.
You can see a few photos from the August trip in this eNewsletter, but you will be able to enjoy pictures from both trips as they will be on view during our Club 50 holiday parties. Yes, it is already that time of year … and for those making their holiday plans, the parties are once again the first two Wednesdays in December – 3 and 10 – and for the second year in a row we will be holding the festivities at the Westin Hotel in Waltham.
Speaking of dates, please don’t forget to call us by Friday, September 12 if you’re interested in coming to our Thursday, September 18 special presentation on our Mackinac Island trip next May 1-8, featuring The Grand Hotel and the Tulip Festival.
We can take additional reservations for just a few more weeks on our WaterFire Providence overnight trip on October 25 & 26. We’ll be celebrating Halloween a little early when our Saturday night also includes the Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular at the Roger Williams Zoo!
