I celebrate with all of us for the gift we have been given: our new Board of Directors. I watched the new board 'mesh' in their first meetings in Chicago in October. I listened on the recent board conference call meeting. This new board is fired up and full of energy, ideas and the ability to make things happen. These are all "my boys" and I am so proud of them. They are what is happening!

When the idea for putting together a Prime Timers Worldwide (PTWW) convention in Chicago began, we had already put together a successful regional Prime Timers conference back in 2014 with me as the conference organizer. Seeing that Chicago was not very involved in the Prime Timers Worldwide scene, I felt that we could put together a convention as well as what previous host cities had done. I floated this idea to our chapter's board of directors who gave their stamp of approval. I then put together a committee consisting of Russell Bond, Joe Conklin, Ed Davis, Wayne Hall, David Lazear, Marvin Levin, and Curtis Tom. I've been a member of Chicago Prime Timers for over 11 years so I know these people very well. Some of them have also been involved in the 2014 regional conference event so that was a bonus. We put together a budget with great help from Joe with his accounting experience, and then presented this to the PTWW Board of Directors.

It was thirty years ago that a professor from Boston, Woodrow "Woody" Baldwin, decided older men could have fun, too. It was 1987 and a different time than today. The gay men who rose up on June 28, 1969 in The Stonewall Riot on Christopher Street in New York City would have felt the gay community had made a good deal of progress in our march toward equality and normalization by 1987. But, there was something missing for the older men that laid the foundation for that progress!

What an enjoyable trip! We went to Mexico City for the Independence Day festivities. Most Gringos think of Cinco de Mayo as Mexican Independence, but it is not. May 5th celebrates the Mexican army defeating the French attempts to take over the country back in the 1800's. Independence Day is September 16th when Mexico declared its independence from mother-country Spain back in 1810.
