NEWS

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.

Way back in October at the Las Vegas convention, I vowed to spend time this spring visiting many of our chapters. I've done that in the past but vowed, this time, to visit and meet even more of our members. I figured the best way to do this would be by car. So, I sat down with my old computer map program and mapped out the route. I then emailed the chapters to see if my timeframe worked with theirs and if they might have members who could host Robert and myself.

Carsick

By John Waters
2014 - 320 pages

This is an autobiographical adventure of John Waters hitch-hiking across country on Interstate 70 from his home in Baltimore to his condo in San Francisco. As a young student, he had hitch-hiked often. But now into his 60's, would he be robbed or beaten en route? Would cars even pick up an aging man? Waters proposed the idea to his publishing company. They jumped on it, gave him an advance, so he knew he had to do it. With his trusty cardboard sign saying "I-70 West", this is Waters' cross-country adventure. It is divided into three different parts. The first two parts, fiction, may have been written prior to taking the trip.

PT Member Manager (MM) is a complete system for managing your chapter's membership. In addition to the usual information (such as name, address, phone number, email address, etc.), MM keeps track of membership status, personal interests, contributions, RSVP history, and more.

What makes MM really shine is its varied and sophisticated reports such as membership cards, applications, nametags, attendance worksheets, rosters, birthday lists, etc. All of these features are accessible within an easy-to-use interface.

For the past decade, hundreds of cross-country skiers — nearly all of them Quebeckers —have come for a week-long ski odyssey through the winter wonderland at the eastern edge of Canada's largest province.

Hardy hikers also started coming at the end of September to see the fall colors and the caribou, and I opted to join them two years ago. We were two Anglo males among 140 Quebecois (100 of them women).
