Opportunity Tickets - A true story from one of our members -Anna Hart - LAX
"Leaving on a Jet Plane"... First Class, Confirmed Seats, and No Charge!"

"Sounds great, doesn't it? It was! Larry & I were finally able to fly to SYR to celebrate Christmas with my family. We used miles that he had won two years ago buying my Convention Opportunity Tickets. And yes, I still worried that we would be bumped! I was thrilled when the aircraft door was closed! We were treated to fantastic service, no weather problems and no delays.


So where are your Opportunity Tickets? The tickets forgotten in your lingerie drawer cannot be WINNERS! I have mailed out three winning tickets in the past and believe me, your odds of being a WINNER are much, much better than when you bought Power Ball tickets!


Thank you to all who have mailed in your ticket stubs. If you are a WINNER and cannot attend the Convention, you will receive a phone call you won't ever forget. Polly called me two years ago, woke me from a nap, (when I was very ill and unable to attend,) and gave me the great news that Larry had won 100,000 miles. He was thrilled and you will be too!


If you need more tickets, please let your chapter president or Polly Toll Goodman know.

Hope to see you in Savannah!"

Savannah Weather in April

Smiling Sun

In Savannah, Georgia, the weather in April is generally mild and pleasant, with warm temperatures and plenty of sunshine.  The temperature usually reaches the 70s and sometimes even the 80s, creating an almost perfect climate.

The warm weather is accompanied by a refreshing coastal breeze, which makes the humidity levels low. Unlike other places where spring showers bring May flowers, Savannah has little rain during this season, so there is no need to bring heavy rain gear. Instead, use the extra suitcase space for souvenirs!

What to Wear

  1. Think casual, but polished.  Savannah is a sophisticated southern city.

  2. Comfortable shoes: You'll be sightseeing and shopping, so wear comfortable shoes that you can walk in for long periods of time. Flats, loafers, or low heels are all good options.

  3. Lightweight layers: April in Savannah can be warm during the day, but it can also get cooler in the evenings. Wear lightweight layers such as a blazer or a cardigan that you can easily take off or put on as needed.

  4. Sun protection: Savannah can get quite sunny, so be sure to bring a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen to protect yourself from the sun's rays.
