South of Boston meeting held 5-16-09

Post by puregold »

I would like to thank all the attendees who came to our very first gathering for the SouthofBoston group. My member list is already up to 18, but not all were able to attend. We had a very diverse group both in age, as well as, investment holdings. Some of the topics discussed were: Annuities, Pensions, Healthcare, CDs, Tips, I Bonds, Mortgages, Value vs. Growth, Dan Weiner - Vanguards Newsletter and Energy.

I do have to mention that one of our members actually took the time out of his moving day to “take a break” and attend this first meeting, I was really impressed!

Our next meeting is tentative for sometime in July/August and will be held on a Sunday, as some members encountered the seasonal Cape Cod traffic. The details for this meeting will be posted as it gets closer to the date. In the meantime, if anyone has a specific question or topic that they would like discussed at our next meeting, please send me a private message and/or post it and I will add it to the agenda.

Thanks again, to all that took the time out of their day to meet with us - It was a pleasure meeting the faces behind the emails. :D

puregold/Cheryl-

Will you be sending participants an e-mail/name list? There's one individual with whom I spoke that I'd like to stay in touch with. (The one who bought individual TIPS years ago but would prefer to have a fund today and with whom I spoke to in a side conversation about Medicare just before I left...if he reads this and can recognize that I mean him, he can just PM me...)
