Making Memories, Merry & Mackinac
by Connie Braceland
We are back from our second “Northern California’s Finest” trip and, as you can see from the photo, we had great weather! Our group was so grateful to enjoy a virtually fog-free San Francisco, an unseasonably warm Yosemite, and a multitude of up-close wildlife including antelope, deer, and bears!
 
But now we’re ready to dive into the Club 50 Annual Holiday Parties!
 
Please refer to the details in our Save the Date section below and the reservation form in the Forms section on the left column. And please don’t forget to reply to us by November 7 – we’re looking forward to a second year of fun at the Westin!
 
This year’s parties will include a bit more behind-the-scenes Club 50 member involvement: We have invited our Advisory Board to the meal tasting – another Board perk for current members JoAnn Agrillo, Joe Anastasi, Lou Frasco, Charlie Jacoppo, Cheryl Richards, and Martha Rotondi!
 
Karen and I met with the Board in September, and they have given us a lot of action items for 2015 and even 2016: Speaking of 2015, if you haven’t signed up for Mackinac Island, this month is your best bet! Special pricing is available through October for the May1-8, 2015, adventure kicking off in Chicago, featuring two nights at The Grand Hotel, and wrapping up with a farewell dinner and tour at the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House. Give us a call if you’re interested!
 
One last note: I’ll wish you a Happy Halloween with a reminder that October 31 is the last day of our Club 50 Theme Song Contest. Don’t be shy: Send in your Club 50-version of lyrics to the classic tune “On the Road Again” and see if you’re a winner!

Does Club 50 Have a New Flame?!

The Kringle Candle Company boasts that it has “quickly become a genuine destination shopping experience’’ – and there’s truth in that advertising! Many of the Club 50 members and guests who joined us on our September 8th day trip to Bernardston, MA, want to plan a trip back to introduce the Kringle “campus” to their friends. They loved the acclaimed Farm Table restaurant, the friendly staff, the 10,000-square-foot candle store, the Chocolate Cottage, the Kringle Christmas Barn, the Kringle story (the company is the brainchild of Mike Kittridge III, son of former Yankee Candle owner Mike Kittridge II), and the lovely grounds – including the whimsical red roosters (pictured, with Maureen Pizzi, left, and Donna Power).
(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.)
