Investment Discussion Group Meeting January 17

Greetings,

 Our next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, January 17, 2017,  we meet at the WCSC, 1;30 pm until 3;00 pm.  I have received my year end statements from Vanguard and I was hoping the rest of you have also received your statements.  The original name of our group was Earn & Learn Investment Group.  We shared our investments and tracked our earnings.  I thought it would be appropriate to show and tell.   I will show you mine if you will show me yours.  We would be sharing the increase in value using percentages of particular holdings, ( stocks, bonds, ETFs, Mutual Funds) but no dollar amounts.  Our interest is only to discover the investments that may produce the highest returns.  So, I would greatly appreciate your participation in this endeavor.  If I am the only investor that will show and tell, the meeting may be over in about 10 minutes or less.  WE need your participation.  If you have copies to make, see me before the meeting and I will make enough copies to pass out to the group.

Remember we have coffee and cookies,and we ask for a $1.00 free will donation to support the club.  There is a new parking sticker available at the front desk.

Please feel free to e mail me if this sounds like a good or a bad idea,  I need the input from you to keep us moving forward with new and exciting ideas.

Hope to see you there.

Best Regards,  Wayne Slater

Welcome Annette Hammond

2017 Walnut Creek  Senior Club President

My name is Annette Hammond.   I am the newly elected President of the Walnut Creek Senior Club.  For 42 years I’ve been a resident of Walnut Creek.  My husband, Bill and I raised our two children here.

For the past 3 years, I’ve been Vice President of the Club and have worked on many social events.  I am the Coordinator for the Hooked on Books club, which meets the first Tuesday of the month.  It’s a fun social group that covers great books – please come and join us.  I’ m also the Monday morning receptionist and I train all new receptionists.  If you would like to stop by and talk to me about events you would like to see us do, I would love to hear from you.

This year I would also like to build up our volunteer corps.  We have many openings and volunteering is a great way to meet people and help in our community.

Someone said to me, coming to the Senior Club is her happy place.  I hope it is for many of you.  Here’s hoping for a great 2017 year!
