Everyone thinks when you get old that your troubles cease; all you have to do is sit home all day, watch television, complain about your aches and pains (who listens?), worry why the kids don't call (these kids are 60 years old), become obsessed with the weather, take pills, etc.

When you work with an organization of volunteers, you never know what you'll get. Volunteers work at their own direction and without the lure of a salary. Results can sometimes be disappointing. We're coming to the close of our board's two-year term. Many of us were strangers when we came together two years ago in October in Las Vegas. Along the way, we've lost some members and gained some members.

Richmond Triangle Players was established in 1992. Back then, Steve J. Earle, Michael Gooding, and Marcus Miller got together to produce a three-night run of one-act plays we called "Safe Sex" based on Harvey Fierstein's trilogy. Harvey gave them special permission to add "Forget Him" which he never allowed anyone else to produce. Thus was born Richmond Triangle Players. RTP is the only theatre company of its kind in the Mid-Atlantic region that welcomes a wide audience with a focus on works relevant to the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender communities. Their aim is to enlighten all audiences with theatre that warms the heart, educates the mind, and entertains the spirit.

As the biennial Prime Timers Worldwide Convention approaches, the Board of Directors and I want to encourage your chapter to participate in-person. The host chapter, Chicago Prime Timers, has put together a great program including the Keynote Address, Workshops, Buffet, Halloween Masquerade Ball, Gala Banquet on the closing night, Dinner Cruise on Lake Michigan (optional), and the Hospitality Room. There will the Business Meeting of the chapter representatives and the Board as well as board meetings to conduct during the formal part of the convention, but there will be time available to see and enjoy Chicago.
