I just completed reading an article in the San Antonio "Express-News" that identifies some similarities to our Prime Timers organization. The article describes the organization of Freemasons, a secret society, dating back to the Middle-Ages. They are described as the world's oldest fraternity. In the United States, the organization surged in membership after World War I as returning soldiers sought to replicate the bonding that occurred among soldiers during the war through masonry when they returned home. The article says there were about 8,000 Freemasons in San Antonio in the 1920s mainly comprised of returning soldiers and members from protestant churches. Today, membership has dwindled to approximately 1,200 and almost no one is joining Masons now. To continue to fund their operation, they began providing tours of their once-secret Scottish Rite Cathedral in the late 1990s and renting it for weddings and other events.

The Canton Ohio Prime Timers have been enjoying the great Ohio weather this summer with several get-togethers. The first gathering was a game night in Minerva. It was hosted by one of our board members at his home. 16 men (including 3 visitors) ventured out for a great time. Three tables were set up for playing euchre while the rest enjoyed talking and fellowship. Several members enjoyed the hot tub in the side yard while others played a game called "Sequence". Food was provided by all. The night ended with a happy bunch of Prime Timers.

Forty-two members and two guests attended the 22nd annual Anniversary Dinner of Prime Timers of Central Florida on August 12 at Golden Corral, 7251 W. Colonial Drive, Orlando.
