The Edmonton, AB chapter of Prime Timers observed their 20th Anniversary with a celebratory dinner on October 13. I was honored to be able to attend their dinner and speak to them briefly. Dinner included a program of memories of events through the years, highlighting their past Presidents, members of note, and both historic and recurring events in the life of the chapter. These included wiener roast and barbeque at Gordon and Bill’s, and picnics at Jerome’s since 1999.
