NEWS

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.

On Sunday, August 16, 2015, our Event Chairman and Vice-President, Steve S, oversaw another successful beautiful gathering in the lush green Metro Park system we are lucky to have in Dayton.
