Any group is nothing without its leaders. How does a chapter maintain strong leadership and growth? In order for a group to continue its operations, new members must be recruited who eventually take over the roles of the previous generation of leaders. There are several traits that are important to lead effectively whether they are "natural" leaders, but this is not the norm for most people. Therefore, in order for a club to survive for years, it is necessary to work at preparing new leaders to take-over the clubs' functions. The older members must continue to pass down their skills and attitudes to the new members and yet allow initiatives to survive. This process insures that the club will continue to grow in members, experience, and knowledge.

Remembering back to 2001 when first starting Prime Timers Sarasota, I recall many men I met and talked with who had recently lost a life partner. It amazed me and brought an awareness of something that I had never thought about. There was a void in each of their lives not easily filled. They came to join and meet new friends and get involved in activities, but when we would sit and talk, one-on-one, they did their best to express in words that special loneliness and emptiness they still were living; nothing would ever be the same.

On March 10, 2018, members of the Prime Timers of Phoenix hopped on board the Desert Belle, a restored sightseeing vessel at Saguaro Lake for a 90-minute cruise. Saguaro Lake is the fourth Arizona reservoir on the Salt River formed by the Stewart Mountain Dam. The lake is located about 40 miles from downtown Phoenix and its named for the Saguaro Cactus that stand majestically in the surrounding desert landscape.
