A Blizzard of Fun!
by Connie Braceland
Karen and I hope all of you fared well with the Blizzard of 2015. We can’t tell you how thankful we are to have been able to schedule our Annual Travel Seminar before being blanketed by so much snow!

Thanks to all of our seminar attendees, and for all of the positive feedback. We had fun doing a few extra things to turn the event into the Club 50 20th anniversary kickoff, including going all out with an Irish theme to help celebrate September’s Ireland trip. We had a great presentation and signup and, luckily, if you couldn’t make the seminar but you want to see the Emerald Isle with us, we have a wee bit of room left!

Also a big thanks to our Travel Seminar performers! Many of you know and love Warrendale’s Assistant Branch Manager Mark Nelson, and now you know how musically talented he is! Mark and his friend Paula Strayhorn good-naturedly (and in a short amount of time) took on the challenge of learning Club 50-related lyrics to Willie Nelson’s “On the Road Again” for the Club 50 Theme Song Contest winning tune! See the winners below, and, as promised, check out the lyrics too!

One more Travel Seminar thank you, to those of you who filled out our survey: You are helping us look into the types of additional seminars you would like Club 50 to present this year and how would you like to further celebrate the 20th anniversary – in addition to our extra trips, of course! See the updated full list of trips for 2015 in “Club 50 Adventures” – hope you can join us on several of them!

[FULL STORY]
Mystery Trip: The First Clue!

If you attended the Travel Seminar or looked at Club 50 online recently, you know that our 20th anniversary year includes a Mystery Trip in November. Well, we can reveal one thing … the date! Friday, November 20. What else can we tell you? It is during the daytime (we’ll have you home before 5), it’s not a long motorcoach ride, and it will be delicious, informative and, most of all, lots of fun!

On the Road Again � to the Post 440!

Congratulations to Andrea Goldstein, Advisory Board member Martha Rotondi, Sharon Lacasse, and Advisory Board alumnus Peggy Anderson (left to right)! These ladies are the winners of our Club 50 Theme Song Contest, who were applauded at the Travel Seminar at the American Legion Post 440.
 
The friendly foursome penned Club 50-version lyrics to the Willie Nelson classic tune “On the Road Again”. (Also, Martha would like to give a special acknowledgement to Paul Falewicz.)
 
So without further adieu, here is Club 50’s theme song!
On the road again
Club 50’s on the road again
The life we love is traveling with our friends
And making new ones by trip’s end.
On the road again
Club 50’s members are on the go again
Sharing thoughts along the way on when the
Next bathroom stop will come our way
 
On the road again
Club 50’s on the road again
Friendships we made are here to stay
Sharing laughter and songs along the way
 
On the road again
Club 50’s on the road again
Love traveling with our friends
And eating dinner with them at 4 pm
 
On the road again
Club 50’s members are on the road again
We were happy and we cheered
When we heard bread pudding would be here
 
On the road again
Club 50’s is anxious to be on the road again
Before darkness falls upon us then
So that we can be home and in bed by 10.
