WorldMark’s 20th Anniversary Celebration Continues
February 2010

In October, WorldMark, The Club kicked off the company’s year-long 20th anniversary celebration. Associates and owners alike celebrated this important company milestone around the country. Over the course of our 20th year, we continue to invite you to be a part of this very special anniversary celebration. We invite you to share your memories of favorite getaways or family celebrations you’ve experienced with WorldMark, The Club by sending us an e-mail and your story may appear on, in your Destinations magazine or in your monthly e-newsletter, the WorldMark Insider.

While many owners have been a part of the WorldMark family since the beginning, the Club continues to welcome new owners every day. Regardless of when they joined, every owner has amazing stories about their WorldMark vacations and experiences.

Meet the Owner who started it all!

Laurie Smith of Leavenworth, Wash. Owner Since: 1989

“We made the decision to purchase WorldMark credits because we were excited about the concept of ownership in a lifetime timeshare program. The fact that we have the choice of multiple locations to vacation year after year versus investing in the traditional timeshare program where you only get to stay in one unit in one location made it an easy decision! The night that we signed up I remember walking out of the WorldMark sales office and asking my husband “what did we just do?!” Being the FIRST owners of a new timeshare concept was a little unnerving to say the least. But I just knew that it had success written all over it. WorldMark’s success story these past 20 years has been our reward! We made the right decision and are reminded of it every time we stay at a WorldMark property. What we love most about being WorldMark Owners is the possibilities are endless! We can go anywhere, anytime, for the rest of our lives! What other timeshare program offers that?!”

Favorite resort destinations: WorldMark Park Village, Leavenworth Wash. WorldMark Kapa’a Shores, Kauai Hawaii WorldMark Kihei, Maui Hawaii WorldMark Cascade Lodge, Whistler, B.C. Canada WorldMark Windsor, Windsor, Calif.

Hobbies/activities pursued when traveling with WorldMark: “When visiting Park Village, Tahoe or Whistler we enjoy skiing, cross country skiing, and snow shoeing. When vacationing in Hawaii we love to snorkel (every day!), scuba, paddle board, and rent dual sport motorcycles to tour the islands. As big wine enthusiasts we enjoy touring the wine country near Windsor and Leavenworth.”

Most memorable moment while on a WorldMark vacation? “While on vacation in January 2005 at Park Village in Leavenworth, Dave proposed to me at a local Italian restaurant. I of course said yes! We married in May 2005 and purchased a home in September 2007 - all in Leavenworth! It’s a magical place!”
