Here’s More on Our 60th Anniversary Celebration


Well, it has officially begun. Now it’s up to you to join in the celebration!


I have so much more to tell you about what will be happening this year to celebrate this fantastic Club that is still alive and kicking into its 60th year. So hold your heads high, every one of you who is and may have been a member for many years, because you are the people who have been keeping this Club going as one of the top clubs in this country.


Other events being planned include: a 60-mile bike ride sometime in June that will be very unusual, so wait for the details later; a boat ride on the Milwaukee River and then out into Lake Michigan on the opening night of Festa Italiana to see the fireworks from the boat with food and beverages, of course; a Golf Scramble in early August at Songbird Hills; a dinner-dance and huge celebration on Fri., August 24, at the Silver Spring Country Club; a Sock Hop the next night, also at Silver Spring Country Club; a possible beach party and picnic by a nearby inland lake; and then many other events and activities to mark our Club’s Diamond Anniversary.


So get ready to celebrate and be part of the fun events to come, so we can all have a great year celebrating and paying tribute to the Club and all of the thousands who have been part of it over the 60 years.


One more nice thing we have arranged for is for you to be able to take any clothing items, such as a cap, polo shirt, fleece, visor, winter stocking cap, sweatshirt, t-shirt, and so on, to the EmbroidMe store at 124th & North Ave., to get our 60th Anniversary logo embroidered onto the items and wear them proudly for years to come for others to see.


So again, Vagabonds, Happy 60th Anniversary!


Your President, Ron

For the past couple of months, articles in the Life have relayed information about Wild Apricot and the many features and benefits it will bring to our Club, including an online Directory, the ability for members to register and pay for events online, as well as many other fantastic benefits.


The Vagabond Board is excited to announce that during March, weare planning to pilot online registration and payment for a limited number of events, which will be announced later. Members will be able to register for these events and pay for them online using their credit or debit card. More events will be added as we move forward. Please remember that using on-line registration and payment is the member’s choice. Nothing is being taken away and no one HAS to register online.


Members can continue to complete an Event Coupon and mail it along with a check to the event leader, or come to a Vagabond meeting and pay in person using a check, credit or debit card. All of the online options are additions to the registration and payment options already available. We will also be sending emails and other communications in the near future. More to follow later…
