Excitement is mounting as registrations continue to come in for the first ever Prime Timers Midwest Regional Event sponsored by Chicago Prime Timers. The event will be July 17-120, 2014. The Worldwide Board Meeting occurs on July 17.

The Chicago club is 35 years old and has 240 active members. We love our city and we especially love sharing our city with others!

Come enjoy "The Windy City", Prime Timers style in ". . .the town that Billy Sunday could not shut down" (according to the song).

WOW! What a success the 2016 Western Regional Gathering was. We were concerned a little about having an event like that at the Stratosphere. Turns out that we had nothing to worry about. The Stratosphere was wonderful as they gave us great customer service and were always there or available. Some of the highlights were the food at the Meet & Greet, the Private Pool Party, the Comedy Show, and the Dinner Banquet.

On Tuesday, January 6th of 2015, gay marriage came to Florida, the first state in the Deep South to open its doors for gay men and women to legally marry. Gracing the covers of national and international newspapers are photos of the first men to marry in the capitol city of Tallahassee. The photos made the cover news of The Advocate and Out magazines as well as many national newspapers. What is unique for our own Prime Timer News is that the cover photo of the marriage is made up totally of men from the Tallahassee Chapter of Prime Timers. Included in the photo of the three couples being married is the minister Jerry Edwards, the president of the local Prime Timer chapter. One of the couples includes George Brophy, the Vice President of the chapter. 

Come to think of it, there are things worse than old age. When I am in one of my "old age sucks" moods, I direct my thoughts to what has been so good--things that many of my friends never had the opportunity to experience because they left this world so soon in life.

How lucky I am to have lived so much longer than many of my friends--I lost young buddies in World War II, the AIDS epidemic, and for other reasons. Sometimes when I am in my "Count your blessings" moods, I turn to God and ask, "Why me? Why am I still here and they're not?"
