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.

We all read about it constantly in newspapers and online. We've sadly become familiar with the words "Hackers", "Imposter Scams", "Fraud', and "ID Theft". We tend to be cautious in what we reply to and know when not to reply. Despite exercising caution, I'm sad to report to you that our organization was recently scammed. We have been awaiting the results of the six-week FBI investigation and police report. The first of those investigations has been reached with no results.

As part of their community outreach, members of Prime Timers of Central Florida participate each year in two projects unofficially known as Good Deeds. One of the projects helps an HIV/AIDS service organization; the other benefits an organization that serves needs needy seniors in metropolitan Orlando.

For almost 10 years, members have brought such toiletry items as toothpaste and toothbrushes, razors and shaving gel, soaps and shampoo, body lotion and deodorant to the chapter's annual Christmas dinner in early December. The collected items are then delivered to Hope and Help Center of Central Florida for distribution to its clients who are affected by HIV/AIDS.

If I were moving to a new city, the first thing I would check: Is there a Prime Timers chapter there? Is it possible that there are people in your city who do not know there is a chapter there? If so, you may not be fulfilling our purpose of providing a better social life for every older gay or bisexual man in your city.
