This area contains all of the news articles from the Prime Timers Worldwide quarterly newsletter.  They are listed in chronological order, with the most recent news article listed first.  Feel free to peruse this article archive; it is chock full of interesting stories from local chapters, the worldwide organization as a whole, and important news to its members.

Lavender Magazine in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, honored the MSP Prime Timers with a community award in October. The magazine noted in the award that “although being non-political, [Prime Timers MSP} is concerned with social issues that affect older gay and bisexual men. The members come together for the comradeship – the social aspect helping a generation that was afraid to come out of the closet.”

I've just passed my 71st birthday and I'm still working. I tell people that, and get one of two reactions. One camp says when they retired, it was the best decision they ever made and can't see why everybody doesn't retire when they're able to. The oth­er camp says, "Good for you! Keep busy, no reason to retire if you don't want to."

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!

 

Way back when (around 2006), I heard from a man (H.B.) in the Columbia, S.C. area who expressed an interest in Prime Timers. Two years later, I heard from another fellow in the same area. I sent out a "chapter startup kit", but he claimed that the area was too "red neckie" and couldn't get anything started. Subsequently, he moved and now resides in Florida.
