By Dewi Wilson, from the March 2013 Aptitudes, the newsletter of the Atlanta Prime Timers


This month, something a little different. Ken Anderson, the Prime Timer whose novel Sea Change has recently appeared, graciously agreed to answer a few questions I asked him about the book and related subjects. I hope you enjoy the Q&A.

 

Yes, that's right! Our gathering for 2016 is at the Stratosphere Tower on the famous Las Vegas Strip. We have room rates at $40 plus $14.99 resort fee for the first 100 rooms booked. After those are booked, prices may go up, so book your room early. This gathering will be very different than what we have had in the past. The convention rooms are all on upper floors with great views of all the valley. We have increased the number of seminars & workshops. We do have a private pool party with optional pizza and beer. We will be seeing a live show at the Stratosphere in place of our usual entertainment night.

Canton Ohio Prime Timers' 4th annual garage sale was recently held the week of May 30th in the garage generously donated by the club's Vice President, Rich L. Tuesday was setting up and pricing day. All items were donated by the club's members and friends of the club. Items ranged from furniture, dishes, tools, toys, electrical appliances, towels, bedding, and of course, Christmas items. Pricing was done in record time!

We have 19 couples (some with non-member partners) and the rest are single/widowed/divorced. Our oldest active member, Jack, had his 91st birthday in August.
