Las Vegas Update

Published in: Click to show all news |

The Las Vegas chapter is working very hard on the upcoming Worldwide Convention being held Oct 11-14, 2015 at the Luxor Hotel & Casino here in Las Vegas. We have over 520 registrations. Rooms are sold out at the discounted rate.

So much is happening in our Prime Timers world. We are most excited about our newest chapters; after many years we have a new chapter in Asheville, NC. They stay in touch with me. I am so impressed at how quickly they’re growing and how many events they have going. I made them a promise to come up and visit sometime this year. I predict this chapter will soon top 75 members!


Norfolk celebrated Gay Pride with it's annual Out In the Park festival. PTWW provided over a hundred copies of recent newsletters to hand out to promote the chapter. Bill Zimmerman, the Treasurer of Tidewater Prime Timers (Norfolk, VA) reported “We gave away just about all the literature and we'll see if that generates some new members. It certainly did last year.”

Bill continued, “It was HOT and very humid but we had a swell time. A rain storm broke up the party at 5pm, sending us running for shelter. Shortly afterward, the sun reappeared and look what everyone saw. The left side of the rainbow is hovering over our Botetourt Street house.”
