50 J U L Y / A U G U S T 2 0 1 6 W H E R E w e ' v e B E E N For eight days, the FSB Connect Club embraced the laid-back atmosphere of the all-inclusive Costa Rica experience. Members escaped winter for the week in the Puntarenas province at the DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Central Pacific in El Roble. ìThere were some optional tours that people could take if they wanted to see the volcanoes, rain forests, coffee plan- tations and other places of interests. However, the majority of the group enjoyed the activities at the hotel, poolside, relaxing and getting to know one another. It was great to be able to have dinner when you wanted to and just be on your schedule. Probably one of the nicest things about this tour was that we didnít have to change time zones and the U.S. dollar was accepted everywhere.î — JOLENE BUCHHOLZ, FSB CONNECT CLUB DIRECTOR TRIP: Spectacular Costa Rica All-Inclusive TOUR OPERATOR: Trips DATE: January 2016 fi rst state bank connect club MARION, IOWA Alumnus and professor emeritus of geography and environmental science David Block, PhD, served as a tour guide for 42 alumni and friends during a 12-day tour through Alaska.
