APRIL 2ND, 2016

Join us for a day of history, education, fun, and culture. April 2nd is the day. We have a charter coach reserved and there will be a lot to see. There are displays honoring all of our former presidents in addition to the actual JFK Air Force One parked right inside the building. It’s been 7 years since we’ve visited this historic landmark. Here are some photos from our last trip…

The price for this tour is $60 per person. The tour will include transportation to the Reagan Library, admission to the museum, admission to the special exhibit Vatican Splendors, beverages & snacks. Departure time will be 8:00am from the First United Methodist Church in Mission Valley, and we will return before 8:00pm. The admission price is slightly higher on this trip because the Vatican Splendor Exhibit has it’s own additional non optional price and is a special engagement. To learn more about the library and exhibits you can visit their official website at:

There will be a meal stop on the way home. That will be at your own expense. But there will be snacks on board the bus and there is a very nice café on the library property.

Everyone is welcome but bring the kids

This event is a gift from me to all the kids. For years members have been asking me to do events for the kids. I have accommodated that request many times but for some reason when I offer kid friendly events, there is no or low response. I know you all love your kids, so I’m going to give you a little motivation in efforts to get you all out.


This event is a gift from me, to the kids. I have a limited amount of tickets so don’t delay. I have purchase a bunch tickets and I am donating them to you and your kids. This event will be absolutely free for your kids. I’ll be skating with them and if you would like to join the fun it will cost for adults is $12 including skate rental. It really doesn’t get any better than that. All you have to do is RSVP & show up. I am giving Free tickets for everyone 18 and under but there are a limited amount. This will be a great event for a little family bonding. I hope to see you there. You will need to RSVP and if you RSVP I will expect to see you there.


The location is:
San Diego Ice Arena
11048 Ice Skate Pl.
San Diego, CA 92126

I hope to see you all for some Ice Skating fun. Sign up now so you don’t miss out. Bring your warm clothes and bring your smiles.

Note: I have paid for these tickets in advance and out of my own pocket . Please do not RSVP unless you actually plan to attend. I really want to give someone the opportunity for a fun day but I don’t want that opportunity… or my money wasted.

Nov. 14th, 15th, & 16th, 2014

A lot of planning hours went into this one but it was a huge success. It may turn out to be an annual event. The Days Inn Williams AZ were our wonderful hosts and took care of our every need. The partnered up with Kicks on Route 66 next door who took care of our dining needs. Along with the indoor pool and use of the breakfast room, we were able to have both a wine pool party and a cocktail party.

After breakfast on Saturday morning some of us will take the 1 hour bus ride to the rim of the Grand Canyon while others opted to ride the historic Grand Canyon Railroad. We all rendezvoused at the canyon and had a great time touring and enjoying it’s beauty.

The views were spectacular and many new friends were made. For many of the group it was their first time visiting the Grand Canyon. They were able to scratch that off their bucket list. This was one of most fun adventures to date.
