December Monthly Updates - 12/10

Monthly Updates December 2010

President’s Letter

Dear Members:

Here we all are staring at the HOLIDAY SEASON before us - all nationalities celebrating this holiday in our own way - too soon it jumps out at us and then quickly hides for another year.
 
I have only joy in my heart with all the good wishes all around me.   At my age it is at the Doctors office, Dentists office and other establishments I frequent wishing each other a happy healthy holiday. 
 
It has been a pretty good year for me - I hope all  has been good for you,  for you are all a part of the total of many  folks I've met and you happen to be the ones I prefer not to forget.  And whether I have known you for many years or just a few - in some way you have had a part of shaping things I do.
Every year when this holiday comes - I realize anew the biggest gift that life can give is having a social club with folks like you.
Happy holidays - see you at the Christmas Luncheon at the Odyssey.


 
Next Board Meeting will be December 1, 2010 at Ann Anderson - it will be a pot luck luncheon  for board members only- 12:00 noon - please bring a $10.00 gift for a gift exchange and call Ann  (check directory) to reserve a seat.

Our December luncheon will be at the Odyssey Restaurant. Remember if your birthday is this month we have a special gift for you.

A NOSTALGIC HOLIDAY EXPERIENCE!!

BOARDING TIME FOR THE  WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 15, 2010
trip back in time to revisit the Good Old Days will be 8:20 AM. 

IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A CONFIRMED PLACE AND we have your check, release and lunch choice you will be ready to join us on our comfortable coach which will be waiting at the 24 hour Wal-Mart on Carl Boyer Drive.  Please park on the far right (grocery side) towards the back. 

Our day starts with a “BONUS STOP”!!!    Can you guess where???

Then, we will indulge in a delicious lunch at an award winning, upscale, American restaurant.  After that, we head for the historic Old Town Music Hall where we will have an entertainment filled afternoon

This is a day designed for fun, nostalgia, and leisure. The cost of the trip is $75.00 which includes transportation, tips, lunch, the afternoon of entertainment in the Music Hall and whatever else the Vagabonds can dream up! 

We are currently keeping a waiting list. Call Giovanna Cabaret right away and tell her you want to go if there is an opening.   Send your check, made out to her, in the mail. (or hand it to her ASAP).

The Vagabonds and the Party Bus
wish all of our faithful travelers an incredibly
Happy Holiday Season!!!
