Inman Sq. LGBT Luncheon

The first luncheon has been postponed and will be Monday, March 19th, 2018, from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM. The cost of the luncheon will be $11 (or you may order from the menu). The January date listed previously has been cancelled. The third Monday was chosen as there were no other LGBT events on that day. This will be held at S & S Deli until further notice, depending on projected attendance. (If there are 30 or more people, it will be at Ryles.) S & S Deli is at 1334 Cambridge Street, Cambridge; Ryles is across the street (to the south) at 212 Hampshire Street.

Should you need to get there by T, take the Red Line to Central Square, then catch either the 83 or the 91 at the bus station on Magazine St. just south of Mass. Ave. Both buses stop on Hampshire St. between S & S and Ryles (just before the intersection with Cambridge St.). Alternately, you can take the Green Line to Lechmere and take the 69 bus down Cambridge St. to the intersection with Hampshire St.

Join us and bring a friend!

JP Jubilee December Concert

On Saturday, December 2nd at 3:00 PM, JP Jubilee (who performed at October’s meeting) will host a concert at Hope Central Church (85 Seaverns Ave., Jamaica Plain) with the Parkway Community Orchestra. Please support Boston Prime Timer Jim Flavin and the rest of the chorus who graciously entertained us!

The easiest way to get to the show by MBTA is via the Orange line; get off at Green St. and go northeast on Gordon St. which becomes Seaverns Ave. after you cross Elm St. The church will be on the right, just after Elm.

JP Jubilee is a class for all seniors who want to learn new songs and musical skills, make friends, promote good health and perform for the community. They meet weekly at the JP branch (at 30 South Street, Jamaica Plain) of the Boston Public Library (Fridays 10:30 AM-noon). There are no auditions, nor fees required. After the December concert, further performances start again in February for another 12 weeks. Contact lizanker@comcast.net or visit her website for more information.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello Gentlemen,

Summer has come to an end. The leaves are changing color and the weather is getting cooler. Holiday season is upon us. We are looking forward to spending our holidays with friends, enjoying their company and delicious meals. If you are able to host, please think about spending the day with some other members who may normally stay home alone, whether it be a smaller or larger group. We would love to see everyone have a place to go.

I hope everyone enjoyed the entertainment at last week’s meeting. Thanks to Elizabeth Anker and to Bob Kingston-Parrott for finding these talented singers for us. Again, if you know of anyone (group or individual) you’d like to see at a meeting please contact Harry or Bob.

Club Café will prepare a delicious turkey dinner during our November Meeting so come with an empty belly. You will find the Thanksgiving dinner on the tear sheet in this month’s Prologue. Thanks again to Tony and Steve for all their hard work in the past, preparing dinner for us.
