DEBATE GOES ON
In response to the November debate, “Is it OK to
discuss politics at the holiday table?”
NO Holiday time in our family is spent having
fun, remembering and acknowledging our loved
ones who are no longer with us, telling stories of
years past and forming even stronger family
bonds. There are plenty of other days in the year
to discuss political standings.
—Susan Dunlap, from facebook.com/Costco
YES Only if you know the topic will be welcome
to others at the table.
—Shelley Kempner Vaden
I was happy to read “Honoring the military”
[November] featuring Captain Jerry Yellin. My
husband and I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Mr. Yellin in March of ;;;; when we traveled
to the South Paci;c, including Saipan, Tinian,
Guam and, most proudly, Iwo Jima. Mr. Yellin is
an amazing veteran and American who made our
trip most memorable.

not Bavaria (“The Nutcracker revealed”).

All ads indicate whether a
product is available in the
warehouse, on Costco.com
or both. Products are scheduled to be available during
The Connection’s month of
publication and are noted as
in warehouse “early in month”
(1st to 10th), “mid-month”
(11th to 21st) or “late in month”
(22nd to 31st). Shop early in the
month for the best selection of
seasonal items. Costco.com
carries many of the products
available at the warehouses
and offers thousands of additional items, including line
extensions and supplemental
products. Prices are usually not
listed because they have not
been finalized at the time of
printing and may vary from one
part of the country to another
due to shipping costs. We hope
members know to check Costco
first when comparison shopping.
To keep prices low, Costco does
not offer a telephone service
allowing members to call in for
prices or product availability.
