May President’s Message

Hello Gentlemen,

I am very excited about our Ogunquit Spring Fling. It is going to be a great time for everyone. We have 33 rooms sold at this time and a total of 55 members and guests, with more to join us for our Friday evening party.

There will be members of the Seacoast Gay Men and North Shore Men, as well as our brothers from the Rhode Island and Connecticut chapters of the Prime Timers.

See you on May 31st for a great weekend!

We will be having an Italian buffet and soft drinks for Friday evening’s party. For anyone wishing to have adult beverages, you will need to bring your own. Should you want a bottle of wine, Perkins & Perkins is just down the street at 478 Main St. and the Ogunquit Wine Cellar is 2 minutes south of the resort at 59 Shore Rd. (turning southeast off of Main St.) on the east side of the road.

For the stragglers who have yet to pay for their lodgings and the Friday evening party, please get your checks into the office ASAP or contact me at (781) 587-1429 or about paying with a card.

We have an exceptional guest speaker lined up for the May 18th meeting. David Velasco-Bermudez was present at the Stonewall Inn during the 1969 riots. This incident is widely credited with spurring the modern Gay Rights movement. David, accompanied by his partner Robert Isadore, will speak to us about his experiences that night, as well as his activism since then. We are opening the presentation to anyone who wishes to attend. Please invite your friends or anyone you feel might be interested.

We have reserved a Boston Duck Boat for the Boston Pride Parade. We are looking for volunteers to help decorate and ride with us. David Velasco-Bermudez, Robert Isadore, Lady Di and a number of our friends from Club Café will be on the Duck Boat. If you are willing to voluteer to decorate or would like a seat on the Duck Boat, please contact me at (781) 587-1429 or

The Boston Pride Parade this year will be at noon on Saturday, June 8th.

I look forward to seeing you in Ogunquit, at the next meeting and at Pride!
