Seattle Prime Timers Celebrates

>25 Years of Gay and Bi Men Making New Friends for Life . . .

Word from the Chairman and Steering Committee

Seems like I have made it through the probationary period. I have tried to rush through meetings, used my bad jokes, tried being moody and reassigned my role to others, thanks Chuck. Yet I am still addressed as Mr. Chairman.

I always asked myself the question, that we all should ask, which is “How to be honest with yourself?” We all like to be loved by others, have fun, great friends and lovers.

Believe it or not, I used to be a really shy person. I would go no-where, I never wanted to meet anyone, or do much of anything with others. For many years, I knew the same people and did the same things. And I was in a rut at age 30 and I said something had to change. Slowly over the course of about 20 years, I changed from being scared of change, to wanting to cause change. And let me tell you I have only just begun.

So, what does this have to do with Seattle Prime Timers? In the past, I would have not even looked for a group like this. Now, I look forward to going and meeting new people everywhere I go. I am who I am, and I am in control of my life and if I want to do something, I do it. Well we are in the prime of our life, so we have to make the best use of it.

Please feel free to mention our group to other people, think about helping out with political events, go into that noisy gathering, go into that meeting that is reading poetry, check out some new kind of music or some recreation events. People always have an opinion and love to share it. Ask them what they like to do for fun, what are their dreams, and do they like baseball? I know I run out of time before the weekend is done. You will have stories to share, and event ideas for our group. And we would be elated to have anyone that wants to talk about an experience at our potlucks to please do so.

See you at the next event, the schedule is on the Calendar tab.
