This area contains all of the news articles from the Prime Timers Worldwide quarterly newsletter. They are listed in chronological order, with the most recent news article listed first. Feel free to peruse this article archive; it is chock full of interesting stories from local chapters, the worldwide organization as a whole, and important news to its members.
In recent newsletters, this fund has been mentioned several times. With the recent "Orlando Massacre", it was suggested as a place to make donations. With the passing of our founder, Woody Baldwin, it has again been mentioned. I'd like to take this time to give some background information about the fund and how it operates and helps promote our organization.
Several Board Members attended the Celebration of Life Service for Woody Baldwin. They were Michael Stone, Richard Tobison, Jack Nimmo, and myself. There were also several past board members present.
It was well attended and had a very good program. Several of Woody's friends spoke, including the only living charter member of the Austin Prime Timers. Several people from his poetry club also spoke.
In Loving Memory of Woody Baldwin and our Lost Brothers and Sisters in Orlando
I've just returned from Austin, Texas where I had the honor of celebrating the glorious life of our founder, Woody Baldwin. It was everything Woody would have wanted: a true celebration in the spirit he requested and a meeting of so many wonderful people. I learned so much more about Woody's colorful life and career.
I want to share a few moments of your time to tell you what it is like being a Board Member. It does not matter if you are a Board Member of a chapter or on the Worldwide Board.
Being a Board Member (which is a volunteer job) takes many hours of my time. I ran for the VP of Chapters position on the Worldwide Board because I was asked. I had no real desire to be on the Board as I am president of the Las Vegas Board and that keeps me busy enough.
