The New Year is upon us and I would like to thank all my friends who helped make 2017 a success for the Prime Timers. The volunteers are the backbone of this organization. In the coming year, we would love for other members to step up and show us what you can offer and assist with organizing events, activities and meetings. Suggestions are always welcome, but please pitch in and help out.
Thank you for all the positive feedback about the Holiday Party at Club Café. A great time was had by all. The Sister Santa Toy Drive was a big success. In addition to the toys for children in foster care, we raised quite a bit of money to help with the Sisters’ efforts. You should all be proud of your contributions. We are at our best when we can help others in our community when needed. Thanks again to Jim Morgrage for his great work and generous gifts to the club.
The History Project will do a presentation at our January meeting. If you have any memorabilia to donate they may be interested in please bring it in. Please see their website or more info on their mission.
- The History Project is a volunteer-driven organization focused on several important initiatives:
- Conducting research on lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, and transgender people in Massachusetts
- Preserving the documentary record of that community’s social and historical contributions
- Providing a forum for educating the general public.
We are talking with the folks at Gay4Good about visiting us at one of our meetings to tell us about their organization.
In the pipeline we are working on a Casino trip, the Hasty Pudding Theatrical and are talking with the other New England chapters about ideas for a spring/summer gathering for the Rhode Island, Connecticut and Boston Prime Timers. Please contact Tony and Steve to organize a potluck at your home.
I am looking forward to new faces, fun and adventures in the coming year.
