Good evening gentlemen,
I am writing to you at this time to please ask you all to call me at (857) 544-3630 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org concerning the Christmas party on Sunday. Unfortunately the U.S. Postal Service is behind schedule with the Christmas rush, so we are not getting information into the office fast enough. We need a list of people for Sunday so just please call or e-mail me to confirm that you are coming on Sunday.
Thank you, love you all!
As in years past, we will again be returning to King’s Chapel for one of their annual Christmas concerts. This year the concert will take place on Tuesday, December 19th. We will meet at King’s Chapel downtown on the corner of Tremont and School Streets at 12:00 Noon on the 19th, and the half hour concert will begin at 12:15 PM. They will be performing Handel’s “The Half-Hour Messiah”. After the concert we will have lunch somewhere in the immediate vicinity of the chapel and we can decide where that will be at the time. The place doesn’t matter as much as just being together to share the Christmas spirit. Many of you have been with us before for this cherished event and we hope that some of the new members can join us this time for the joy of the concert and the pleasure of our splendid company at this once a year holiday celebration. For more information on King’s Chapel, and their concerts, see kings-chapel.org.
Call toll-free (888) 234-SAGE or e-mail email@example.com.

Below is one sent in by our former office manager, Bob Adams, who took over the office from Dick Bourbeau, as many of you may remember.
My entry into a gay lifestyle began when I moved to Boston in 2002. Until then, my life was a totally straight. Being new to Boston and new to a gay lifestyle, I needed to build a circle of gay friends and that is exactly what happened when I attended my first PT meeting in January 2003. This first meeting convinced me to join and get fully involved. Shortly thereafter I volunteered to assist in the office. Dick Bourbeau took me under his wing and patiently taught me all I needed to know to take on the management of the office which I willingly did.
By doing so, I got to know the entire active membership and greatly expanded my circle of gay friends–true and caring friends, many of whom I remain in contact with today!!!
Looking back, I am so thankful and grateful for all the Boston Prime Timers brought into my life. The monthly meetings, the monthly dinners, the after-meeting dinners, pot lucks, weekends in P-town and Ogunquit and anniversary and holiday parties. I can’t even imagine what my gay life in Boston would have been without the Boston Prime Timers. Thank you for all the joy and enjoyment you brought into my life.

On Tuesday, January 13th at 4 PM, we will attend a performance of Shakespeare in Love, put on by the SpeakEasy Stage Company. They are located at the Calderwood Pavilion, 527 Tremont St., Boston in the South End. The closest T stop is Back Bay Station and it is about an 8 minute walk on Clarendon St. across Columbus Ave. From Park St., the 43 Bus has a stop in front of the Pavilion. Parking can be a bit of a problem. I know the theater validates at the Clarendon St. Garage at Back Bay Station.
In order to qualify for the group discount, we would need 10 or more members to attend. The price will be $35. It would be a great way to spend an afternoon with your group members. There are many restaurants near the theater as well as Club Café which is about 10-12 minutes away.
If you are interested in going, please fill out the tear sheet and return it to the office by December 29th. If we do not receive enough for the show, we will refund the money.
