    Prime Timers are older gay or bisexual men (and younger men who admire mature men) who enrich their social lives, engage in diverse activities, and enjoy opportunities and friendships with other Prime Timers throughout the world. Our organization is emerging as a leading force in the gay and bisexual communities with over 80 chapters throughout North America, Europe, and Australia. Look for a chapter near you!


    Prime Timers was founded in 1987 by a retired professor, Woody Baldwin. He felt a wide gap existed in today's society which caters almost exclusively to youth. Woody began the Boston Chapter by placing ads in local newspapers and soliciting his many friends. The attendance at the first meeting indicated to Woody that a need existed for social and cultural organizations to aid and support the aging gay and bisexual man. Now this organization has grown to over 80 chapters worldwide, located throughout North America, Europe and Australia.


    Our members are men who choose to have their social lives enriched by the diverse activities in which our members engage. Prime Timers are fathers, care givers, businessmen, entrepreneurs, workers, and retirees. One thing is true of all Prime Timers: they enjoy the opportunities and friendships that develop with other Prime Timers throughout the world.


    Come learn more about Prime Timers, make new friends, and explore different parts of the country and world! Regional events invite members to come together for fun and friendship. Destinations such as Oklahoma City, Las Vegas, and Denver are regular, annual events that are open to all Prime Timers members and friends.


    Individual chapters welcome the chance to meet visitors from other chapters. Letters asking for local information and recommendations will be well received and acted upon. Chapters enjoy showing off their communities and having visitors come away with a feeling of kinship and brotherhood with their new-found friends.


    Sail the seven seas with fellow Prime Timers members from all around the world! Worldwide and chapter sponsored cruises explore exotic destinations such as Rome, Italy, the Western Caribbean, Miami, Boston, Amsterdam, Munich, the Rhine River, and many more. It is an experience that you will never forget.


    Prime Timers chapters offer a myriad of weekly and monthly activities to suit social interests. Members get together for dinners, potlucks, cards, board games, movies, outdoor adventures, and much more. It is a sense of strong community and supportive brotherhood that highlights each chapter and throughout the organization.


    The Prime Timers Worldwide Convention is held every two years in major cities to allow our members to gather to socialize with other Prime Timers, attend workshops geared towards Prime Timers and to conduct business of the organization. Plans are always underway for the next upcoming convention.

Members of the Wichita, KS Prime Timers chapter celebrated their 16th anniversary with a dinner on August 15th.

Organization activities for the chapter began in 1998 and the chapter was chartered in 1999 with eight members. The founder and first president of the group was Dale Sneeringer who passed away this year. Early meetings consisted of covered dish dinners and discussions were held around how to recruit members and develop interesting activities to offer members. In its efforts to grow the chapter, ads were placed in the local gay community publication. This included a phone number and address where interested individuals could contact the group. Several years later, the membership grew largely due to the Internet. An e-mail address and a web site were created, making it even easier to reach potential members. After that, the group grew to an all-time high of 85 members. However, after several years it is now somewhat stabilized around 60+. Chapter business cards have been designed and made available in local community businesses. Members use the business cards to give to friends and prospective members. A poster to be placed in bars and other gay-friendly organizations has also been created.

The Prime Timers Worldwide website (www.primetimersww.com) contains a wealth of information and helpful resources. You can read it much like a regular newspaper with a cup of joe in the morning. But it is not always convenient to check the website for new information, especially if something important was announced days/weeks before your last visit.
