So where do you display all your certificates or maybe I should ask what drawer/closet are they in.

I was wondering if the 10 year milestone got a free dinner somewhere.....looks like not. Too bad.
At least we got the pics and memories. Not to forget the tan.

Pammy, it already comes in a nice frame.

Happyt1, we got a free dinner for our 10th and 20th year presentation, but it wasn't the Aruba government giving that to us, it was our resort ie. Costa Linda that gave us that, plus last year a bottle of champagne. We love Costa Linda. And most years we are celebrating our wedding anniversary in Aruba and CL gives us a bottle of champagne then as well. Did I say I love Costa Linda?! :D

While we were at Costa Linda last September, one of the CLBR members was honored for their 50th consecutive year of going to Aruba. Story & picture was in one of the Aruba Today issues in September 2017.

All I can say is WOW!!! That is amazing. They must have started coming to Aruba in their late 20's or early 30's.
Or they are in their 90's now and very healthy. Good for them.

Just got the form via email from the Tam with instructions to drop off when we arrive. I think I will also scan & email beforehand too.

Our resort (Amsterdam Manor) did the same for our 10th and 20th year presentations. We also received really nice personalized robes from the hotel, too, for our 20th - with their logo and our names stitched on them.

Next year would be my 50th year - my parents started taking me when I was 6. "Unfortunately" I only have the 20 year certificate and I'm not eligible for the 50 year any more (we moved here full time 5 years ago...)

Pammy, let us know what transpires; how the presentation goes and what, if any gifts you receive.

DW found the Aruba Today issue (Sept 26, 2017) that has the picture & story of the guy at CLBR celebrating 50 consecutive years - link to issue:

https://issuu.com/arubatoday/docs/atd26september2017

He's the guy in the yellow shirt.
