Wouldn't be the first time I showed up somewhere on the wrong day.

If Taylor does sail on Saturday, I would love to be in the crew!!

Hi elainet7!

Our formal meeting is from 12 noon to 2:00 pm, but we have our room from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm, so we gather early and stay late. We have a nice spread of sandwiches, cookies and sodas, so we eat well and talk finance for 4 hours :mrgreen:

You will enjoy the meeting, meet many interesting Bogleheads, and learn more about successful investing.

We welcome another special guest to our next South Florida local chapter meeting on Sun. Jan. 26, 2020, from 12 noon to 2:00 pm.

A Vanguard Senior Advisor from the Vanguard Personal Advisor Services (PAS) is joining us and will take all Q's :happy

Our beginning topic for discussion will be how to create one's personal asset allocation for each phase of our life. The Vanguard advisor will explain how Vanguard assesses this very important matter for clients, and Taylor and Mel will provide suggestions from their perspective.

Everyone is encouraged to prepare Q's on this and to share their personal experiences with their asset allocation travails :mrgreen:

We will also branch out into Anything and Everything Personal Finance and enjoy a light lunch.

And most important of all - we will be celebrating Taylor's 96th Birthday :D

Please RSVP out loud here, by PM or via our local chapter gmail SFLBogleheads@gmail.com

Hi,

I'm a new S. Florida Boglehead and would love to attend. My name is Angela.

This is my first meeting, so is there anything I need to prepare, or bring with me, other than a pad of paper and pen?

Looking forward to it!

Thanks,
Library Lady

Hi Library_Lady,

I sent you a Private Message (PM) which has not yet been opened. Log in and click on the private message button, or go to your user profile and click on messages.

At our meeting we have internet access and we can show everyone how to navigate this Bogleheads forum and use all its benefits.

The only other thing to bring would be Q's on your asset allocation, and any other Q's large or small on any personal finance topic. If you have paperwork you have Q's on, bring them! You will receive many helpful answers and suggestions. :happy

What a real treat for Taylor, as well as Marlene and me, to see your smiling face at the meeting/birthday party today and get one of your great hugs, Gail. I know it meant a lot to Taylor that you would come all the way from Texas to help celebrate his 96th.

President Mariam2:

Once again you have outdone yourself: I am certain that everyone, like me, had a good time and learned a great deal about investing from our guest speaker and our Boglehead audience. The opening video featuring our mentor, Jack Bogle, was perfect to set the tone for what was to come.

I love my giant 96th Birthday Card with a picture of Jack and me, and signed by my friends in our South Florida Bogleheads Chapter.

I am a lucky man!

Thank you and best wishes.
