Tell A Friend
Our Big Year Is Finally Here!
by Connie Braceland
It’s Club 50’s 20th anniversary so let’s start celebrating! We’re going to do just that right off the bat next Thursday, January 22, at our annual Travel Seminar.

Expect the festivities -- starting at 4 p.m. at the American Legion Post 440 -- to be a little fancier than usual. Also, Ruth Rudnick, who is presenting our Ireland trip, has offered a very fine gift as part of our raffle giveaways, and Karen and I will have a bunch of giveaways and other treats as well!

We’re also kicking off our 2015 day trips in style: Make sure to read the details of I Love Lucy! Live on Stage at the Providence Performing Arts Center under “Club 50 Opportunities.” (Just a tease: Lucille Ball will also factor into one of overnight trips this year.)

Our 2015 travel schedule is wonderfully busy: In addition to Ireland, the already-announced Mackinac Island, and February’s Providence day trip, we’re presenting more trips in total than we usually do – and we’re even offering a holiday mystery trip! This gives us all the more opportunity to celebrate 20 years of fun travels and great memories.

Hope you can join us next Thursday afternoon. (Although “officially” the deadline has passed to sign up for the seminar, please call Karen ASAP at 617-928-2337 if you want to come!)

And stay tuned for our other 20th anniversary plans!

Club 50 Discount Tickets
Football Food Frenzy!

Tailgating inside AND for a good cause … AND for a discounted price? How can you resist! The Rotary Club of Waltham, which previously presented the annual Death by Chocolate event, is now kicking off their first-ever Football Food Frenzy, 1-4 p.m. Sunday, January 25, at the site of the annual Club 50 parties – the Westin Boston-Waltham, 70 Third Avenue, in Waltham. Taste and judge the best in tailgating creations from local chefs -- meatballs, wings, nachos, chili, desserts, and unique football food. There will also be a silent auction and a cash bar. Tickets are regularly $15, but for Club 50 members they are only $10! Tickets will be available for purchase at the Travel Seminar as well as in the Club 50 department at the Main Office during regular business hours. (And don’t worry, there is no Patriots game on during this event!) Proceeds from the event benefit nearly two dozen local charities.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree �

Many of us would love Christmastime to last much longer than it does, so let it linger a bit more by enjoying our photo of The Marble House foyer’s tree and trimmings (with, left to right: Marietta Zani, Lorraine Torrielli, Dorothy Morgan, Barbara Burns, Gloria Burns, and Marion Tierney), part of our sold-out Christmas in Newport day trip in mid-December. We toured not only The Marble House but also The Breakers, and both were absolutely spectacular in their holiday finery; even better, The Preservation Society of Newport County provided easy and informative audio tours for each. We were also thrilled with the unseasonably sunny weather, so we could walk off our decadent lunch at The Mooring on Sayer’s Wharf by doing a little holiday shopping!
(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.)
