Rainbow Ladies Social
Number of ladies attending is growing
The newly formed Rainbow Ladies Social Club had a great turnout at its second meeting on June 8. A total of 42 ladies enjoyed the program and socialization.
Many did not realize that there were so many gay ladies in Leisure World, and club is sure that there are more, so it extends an invitation to all gay ladies who live in the community to come out and join “sisters.”
The July meeting will feature a different member doing the program. Refreshments will be served, but instead of coffee, everyone is encouraged to bring their own soda or bottled water.
Mark calendars for Tuesday, July 1, 6 p.m., Clubhouse 3, Room 5.
For further information, call (714) 847-5916.
Classes help to build bridges between residents
The Sunshine Club has been “Building Bridges for a Brighter Leisure World” for nearly two- and-half years. The club was established to improve communication and understanding between the different ethnic groups living in Leisure World, and for residents to get involved.
The club invites all of its previous guest speakers to the third annual picnic on Saturday, July 5, in the Clubhouse 1 picnic area. A barbecue lunch will be served along with potluck dishes furnished by the members.
The program will include line dances lead by Pat Erickson and Gui Baker. The Hui O Hula will perform, including a couple of audience participation dances. Deejay Max Cadabona will provide music.
To achieve a better environment, the Sunshine Club asked members a month ago to participate in “bring-your-own coffee mug,” to help save the earth from contamination by materials such as Styrofoam cups often used at meetings and gathering.
The group uses the weekly Golden Rain News as a textbook and considers the GR News a treasure of information that enhances living in LW. The club uses the information on various activities, events, classes and about the different cultures. It also uses the paper to learn about GRF rules and regulations.
The class is held every Friday morning in Clubhouse 3, Room 8 or 2, from 10-noon.
