A few years ago the club wanted to rent a boat for an August party on Lake Michigan. With the cost too high, the event was changed to a party on land. Hence, it was turned into the Annual No Boat Party. The chapter newsletter mentions an LGBT Widowers group that meets periodically. The Chicago Prime Timers annual Dinner Dance will be held in late October. After cocktails, a sit down dinner will be served. Then comes dancing with the Chris Forte Band followed by a cake and coffee dessert buffet. Some chapter members attended a Jazz Concert held at a local museum. The performance was outdoors and chairs, snacks and beverages were permitted.
