Below is one sent in by our former office manager, Bob Adams, who took over the office from Dick Bourbeau, as many of you may remember.
My name is Harry Fullerton. I am running for a position on the Board. I am a 58 year old self-employed General Contractor. In my 12 year membership, I have met many friends and enjoyed the trips, activities and events the club has to offer.
During this time, I have enjoyed taking an active role in the club. I have volunteered my time and skills on the Gay Pride float committee. I have organized dances and a Fourth of July cruise as well as served as club D.J. many times.
I ask to continue serving you as an elected member of the board. My goal is to use my energy, skills and knowledge to create a more lively, active and involved membership by organizing events and activities for all members.
2015’s holiday party will be held at The Silver Fox in Everett on Sunday, December 6th from 1:00-6:00 PM. Because of our ongoing fundraising, this year’s party will again be free to all current members. Thanks to your continued support, we are able to keep this event free. We greatly appreciate your efforts and generosity.
In support of The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence’s Toy Drive, we will be accepting donations of new unwrapped non-violent toys at December’s holiday party. Since the party is free, why not bring a gift for a needy child?
Our repast will begin with a cocktail hour with hors d’oeuvres, followed by salad, bread and butter on the table, beef and turkey, butternut squash, peas and mashed potatoes, as well as eggplant for our vegetarian members. This will be followed by ice cream for dessert and our usual birthday cake. A cash bar will be available to serve those in attendance. Tony Soares has volunteered to man the carving station.
There will be plenty of entertainment with DJ service from Stephen & Tony. A complimentary shuttle will be provided from and to the Wellington Orange Line Station. The Prime Timers logo will be on the shuttle for your convenience. The Silver Fox has plenty of parking.
Tickets for non-member guests are $35 per person, but since the current membership fee is only $27, why not become a member? Only members in good standing as of November 17th are eligible to attend free of charge. So get those applications in the mail early, don’t miss out on all the fun!
We will be holding a raffle for exciting door prizes! See next month’s number for more details.
