An Italian Dinner

Published in: Click to show all news |

The men of Palm Beaches Prime Timers spent an evening together at cocktails followed by dinner. It was all camaraderie and lots of discussion. I believe we solved all the problems of the world. There are four dinners, five lunches, deep-sea fishing, biking, games afternoon, hiking, nature walks, and so much more.

OK, so I'm old, but I am not looking for sympathy; I have had one hell of a good time getting here.

They say happiness is a frame of mind; well, maybe so, but I think it may be the other way around also--that one's frame of mind determines happiness. Happy thinking begets happy living; negative thinking begets misery. 

Members of the Wichita, KS Prime Timers chapter celebrated their 16th anniversary with a dinner on August 15th.


Organization activities for the chapter began in 1998 and the chapter was chartered in 1999 with eight members. The founder and first president of the group was Dale Sneeringer who passed away this year. Early meetings consisted of covered dish dinners and discussions were held around how to recruit members and develop interesting activities to offer members. In its efforts to grow the chapter, ads were placed in the local gay community publication. This included a phone number and address where interested individuals could contact the group. Several years later, the membership grew largely due to the Internet. An e-mail address and a web site were created, making it even easier to reach potential members. After that, the group grew to an all-time high of 85 members. However, after several years it is now somewhat stabilized around 60+. Chapter business cards have been designed and made available in local community businesses. Members use the business cards to give to friends and prospective members. A poster to be placed in bars and other gay-friendly organizations has also been created.
