Ogunquit Halloween Trip

The Boston Prime Timers will be visiting Ogunquit this year instead of Provincetown for Halloween, due to the large hike in room pricing. The Ogunquit trip will be Friday and Saturday Oct. 22-23, returning on Sunday Oct. 24th.

Friday night’s dinner will be at Jonathan’s, which we have reserved from 5-10 PM. Dinner seating at 6 PM. The meal will be $40/person, and your meal choices are: Lemon Baked Haddock, Chicken Piccata, Roast Loin of Pork or a vegetarian option (TBA). All meals include Jonathan’s starter salad (greens, cucumber, red onion, carrot, radish, tomato and house Italian vinaigrette), chef vegetable and mashed potatoes.

Restaurant: Jonathan’s, 92 Bourne Ln, Ogunquit, ME 03907

Sunday, September 26 @ 10 AM, Boston AIDS Walk

Support the Boston AIDS Walk at DCR’s Carson Beach in South Boston!

The Boston Prime Timers have for many, many years supported this important gay community event and we continue this traditional support this year. Over the years, BPT have raised over $26,000 for this more than worthy cause that is so important to our community. Last year 25 BPT members pledged $1,310 exceeding our goal of $1,000. This includes the generous contribution of $100 made by the BPT Board. Hopefully, we can match or even exceed last year’s donations.

Please Donate: choose a suggested donation amount or enter your desired amount (the default is $50 but just type over it). ANY AND ALL DONATIONS OF ANY AMOUNT ARE APPRECIATED — WHATEVER WORKS FOR YOU!

1 PM Tuesday, May 11th MeetUp


On our regular Monday night Google Meet sessions, there was a suggestion that we have a Meet Up on the Boston Common. Until we can meet again at regular meetings, this may be an OK safe event.

So, the proposal is to meet up on the Boston Common by the Band Stand around 1:00 pm on Tuesday, May 11th weather permitting meaning no rain and a temperature no less than 50 degrees. An alternative date will be sent out if needed.

No agenda, just a start in seeing each other once again. Join us, no drinks or food provided — bring your own whatever, carry in/ carry out, there are park benches all around the band stand but bring your own chair if you like.

If you drive, there is parking available at the Boston Common Garage right under the Bandstand. Or, MBTA stops on the Red Line (Park Street) and Green Line (Park or Boylston).

Since this is a public place, masks are required.

Please let others know if they don’t do email or just want to come along.

Stop by to say hello. chat, join up to go to lunch, whatever. If this works for you, great, and there will more safe similar events in other locations.

Hope to see you there.

MA State of Emergency, no March meeting


In response to the declared State of Emergency for Massachusetts, we will be cancelling the Saturday meeting on the 21st (St. Patrick’s Day boiled dinner) and the board meeting that would have been held before it. For those who have already paid, we can either void your check, refund you, or use the money towards a future event.

For now, the Tuesday (31st) dinner is still on and we will keep you posted.

Should you wish to read the Governor’s State of Emergency message, here it is.

Stay well, we look forward to seeing you next month!

Peter Krause’s Wake

Michael Healy and Peter KrausePeter Krause’s wake will be held Saturday, August 17th, from 2-4 PM at Dello Russo Funeral Service, 306 Main Street, Medford, MA 02155.

Our condolences to all who knew him; he will be missed.

Via the MBTA, probably the easiest ways to get there are either by taking the Green line to Lechmere, then riding the 80 bus to Main St. @ Bowen Ave. or by taking the Orange Line to Sullivan Square, then riding the 101 bus (also to Main St. @ Bowen Ave.).
