There was never any doubt in Woody Baldwin's mind what Prime Timers should be about. And, lest we forget, he reminded the men of Prime Timers in 2013 on the occasion of their Silver Anniversary. Very simply, Woody said he founded Prime Timers "to improve the social life of gay and bisexual men." That's it! No need to muddy the waters and make it more complicated than that! To improve the social life—people to people opportunities—of gay and bisexual men, pure and simple. Woody believed some people are fortunate enough to live longer, blessed to grow older, entrusted with added years to celebrate life, or fritter it away. He was just bold enough to believe that we could grow old, and do it with grace, style, dignity, and joy, all the while making valuable contributions to our communities.
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.
