Summer may be winding down, but it is just the opposite for Club 50!

We had our preview and sign up night for the May, 2020 Spain & Portugal trip, and we sold out that night!!!

We can only take 44, and we already have quite the waiting list!  We are exploring options, and may be able to run a second trip.  We will definitely keep you posted!

We are almost ready to schedule our preview and sign up night for the other 2020 big trip…The Canadian Rockies!!!  That trip is planned for September, 2020.  We are hoping to schedule the preview night for early October.  If you missed the Spain & Portugal trip, maybe the Canadian Rockies will be the trip for you!

If you have not been by the Club 50 area, make sure you stop by and say hello to Arielle Goldhaber.

I can’t believe she has been here for over a month already!  She is doing a terrific job, and by the time you read this, she will have been on her very first day trip!!

Welcome again, to Arielle!

August is Over, But the Fun Carries On!

Projection and Costumes from the Downton Abbey Exhibition! August has somehow disappeared. How quickly it went by, because of how busy we all were! Productive and fun, we are setting our sights on how this Summer will transition into the Fall.

While the sun was shining, we managed to get two more trips in -- the Whale Watch and the Downton Abbey Exhibit! One was bountiful in whales, the other in prosperity. These two trips were dichotomous in style, but equal in fun! We managed to see more than 10 whales on our excursion, and we captured some great pictures! It was a relaxing afternoon, complete with a great guide and breezy weather.

For Downton Abbey, we definitely managed to see more than 10 people--the place was packed with fans and history buffs! The costumes were exquisite, true to the era, and stirred up excitement for the Downton Abbey Movie! You did not have to be a fan of the show to enjoy the masterfully curated exhibit with intricate projections, including surround-sound screens replaying important and emotional scenes, highlights of characters' personalities, and rooms packed with informational readings.
Although we could have spent all day in there, we were excited about our lunch at Maggiano's, which proved to be as grand as a Downton Abbey dinner. The courses kept coming! I'm sure some of you still have mounds of chocolate cake at home.

Wills: The Cornerstone of Your Estate Plan

If you care about what happens to your money, home, and other property after you die, you need to do some estate planning.

There are many tools you can use to achieve your estate planning goals, but a will is probably the most vital. Even if you're young or your estate is modest, you should always have a legally valid and up-to-date will. This is especially important if you have minor children because, in many states, your will is the only legal way you can name a guardian for them. Although a will doesn't have to be drafted by an attorney to be valid, seeking an attorney's help can ensure that your will accomplishes what you intend.
