2 Letter from Helen A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. Group adventures are unique one in which you board with familiar companions, but as the day progresses you begin to develop lifelong friendships with new intriguing faces. You laugh with each other and discover new things about yourself. You explore new places and share new experiences that will last a lifetime. This is how we energize our day as Freedom Select Members. For those of you that would like to be inspired by local hotspots, this could be a perfect time to take advantage of your Freedom Select benefits. I have chosen a variety of nearby, neighborhood attractions that will make your day worthwhile. What better way could we appreciate fall foliage than to take a journey through the counties in which we live. As a friendly reminder please take advantage of the benefits of your membership not offered anywhere else. If you would like to see a list of your benefits online you can go to the Freedom Select section on ulstersavings.com or I will mail you a brochure upon request. When I am not on a scheduled event I m at my desk to welcome your questions and suggestions. Don t hesitate to call or stop by.
