YEI Birthday greetings
Here are three of the many greetings sent from YEI members on the occasion of YEI’s 6th birthday:
MANY HAPPY RETURNS OF THE DAY YEI……this is such an awesome website and through you I have managed to visit Kruger and am now planning a European tour and enjoyed many other local offers. I am so pleased that you started it and managed to sustain it. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!
Message to Marlene from YEI: Please see FCT’s latest article on the YEI website regarding their latest European tour.
Wishing all the YEI team a Happy Birthday and thank you for all the interesting items in the newsletters. Good to be able to take advantage of being ancient!
Happy, happy 6th birthday, may you go from strength to strength
Best wishes and congratulations on your sixth birthday

Are you getting your YEI free fortnightly Newsletter in your inbox?
It has come to our attention that many subscribers are not receiving their newsletter. Don’t forget to add firstname.lastname@example.org (the YEI email address) to your address book in order to ensure receipt of the YEI free fortnightly newsletter. Servers often see YEI as spam due to references in the newsletter to discounts, great deals, savings etc.
Retiring? Don’t forget to send us your change of email address
Don’t forget to send us your new email address prior to retiring. To change your email address, send us a mail with your name, old and new email address, name of suburb, town, province and cell phone number. YEI doesn’t want you to miss out on great pensioner deals and all of the other valuable information that you receive through the YEI newsletter.
Tell us your story!
There are many awesome seniors out there. And we, at YEI, would love to hear your story and feature it on the YEI platform! Your story could be the inspiration for another YEI reader, your story could be all your once in a lifetime trip. Your story could be about an inspirational golden oldie in your community, or it could purely be sage advice for others. Send your stories to email@example.com.
Don’t keep it to yourself! Tell us about your local businesses who offer discounts to pensioners. The local butcher who has a pensioner day once a week, the restaurant down the road who offers spectacular meals to seniors, the hairdresser who offers a discount on Tuesdays to pensioners.
