December 2012



Wanda Sheldon
Super Seniors Coordinator

2013 is upon us. It’s time to get together for our annual chit-chat session, where we gather and listen to your input or questions regarding our BOB’s Super Seniors program. So come join us, grab a free cup of coffee, cappuccino, or hot chocolate from our “Bean Counter” room on a cool January day, and visit with your friends. Mike Campbell will be with us also to discuss investment opportunities.

Can you believe the changes in the last 50 to 60 years? Our Valentine’s party will feature a presentation, “Those Were the Days,” and we invite you to bring items, dress in clothing from your era, or just join in the discussion regarding a time when things were more simple- or were they?? You won’t want to miss it!
Branson is all excited about “The Price is Right, Live!” You can register to “Come on down!” or just be a part of the audience rooting the contestants on. More than 50 audience members will get a chance to compete for prizes, with hopes of making it to the Big Wheel and on to the Showcase.
Our April fellowship will be a two day trip to Arkansas. The first day and night will be in Little Rock. If you haven’t visited Marlsgate Plantation with David Garner, you have missed out on one of our most popular events. In the evening we will have dinner at Murry’s Dinner Playhouse and enjoy a deliriously funny comedy with the Verdeen cousins of Sweetgum, Texas – Gaynelle, Peaches, and Jimmy Wyvette. The second day we will tour Bentonville, the home of the big-box retailer Walmart. Alice Walton, youngest heir to the empire, is using a large share of her wealth (estimated at $21 billon) to transform the region into a world-class cultural destination, featuring Crystal Bridge Museum of American Art.
In May we want to honor mothers and fathers with a luncheon, if you aren’t a father or mother, you are still cordially invited to dine with us and enjoy the day’s events.
Do you enjoy feeding animals from your hand? You will have that chance when we visit “Wild Animal Safari” in Strafford, MO. We will ride the zebra bus as we tour outdoors in animal land. We will see exotic animals such as a liger (lion/tiger) then complete our trip with a barbeque.
From all of us at Bank of Bolivar, we appreciate your patronage and wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas!
