High Hopes Investment Club Celebrates 25th Anniversary
In the early 80's, the two discussion topics for AAUW were Money Talks and Taking Hold of Technology. Genevieve Angelides, president 1981-1982, brought back to Fremont a wealth of ideas and plans for implementing AAUW programs.
As a result, the High Hopes Investment Club was one of the five AAUW Fremont Branch investment clubs that sprung up during this time. Our club began October 1981 with 15 members. Currently we have 10 members and are proud to announce that we are celebrating our 25th Anniversary with the following three original members: Mary Lynn Pelican, Carolyn Hedgecock, and Caroline Johnston, who has been our treasurer the entire time.
Our monthly dues are $30 and our club is worth $112,000. Each unit is now worth $60.83 instead of $10 when we started. Our effective compounded rate of return achieved since inception was 10.2 %.
High Hopes invited our former members to celebrate with us our 25 years of successful investing and building our wealth at Mary Lynn Pelican's home on Monday, April 2.
Guests are cordially welcome to attend one of our upcoming meetings and possibly become a member of the High Hopes Investment Club. Membership in AAUW is not a requirement. We meet the first Monday of the month at the Fremont Library. Contact: Mary Lynn Pelican 510-656-2521
