Prime Timers

Prime Timers

Prime Timers – A group of mature adults who gather quarterly, usually on the 3rd Wednesday, at noon.  When together we share food, we socialize, we learn, and we have fun.  Occasionally the group will take a day trip. Participants represent several faith communities and while many are retired, some participants are still working. 


Prime Timers News    

The next Prime Timers meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, June 21, 12 noon at Calvary.  Our speaker will be Rob White, Chief Development Officer of Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York.  He is excited to share information about the Food Bank and some recent upgrades to their programs as well as innovations that are planned for the near future.  This organization does wonderful work in our community and supports many local food banks by providing food and resources. He will be joining us for lunch and then will present his program.


We will be providing a sub platter from Mr. Subb as well as chips, drinks, and dessert.  The cost for this lunch is $5.  If you prefer, feel free to bring your own lunch. If you are interested in attending, RSVP to Sharon Kunkel or call 518-368-3968 by Wednesday, June 14. (Checks can be dropped off in the Calvary Office or mailed to Prime Timers, 15 Ridge Place, Latham NY, 12110 by the 14th). If you would like to attend and plan to bring your own lunch, we still need you to RSVP by June 14.

New Summer Prime Timer Event

John Phillippe recently received information about the Lake George Dinner Theatre schedule. “Shear Madness” will be offered July 6-August 26. He thought this might be a good opportunity for a Prime Timer Day trip. It’s lunch, a fun show and Lake George is close enough that we could carpool.  There was enough interest expressed at the March meeting, so we have seats reserved for Tuesday, August 8. The cost is $67.50, which includes the show and lunch. Lunch will be served sit-down style with a choice of MEDALLIONS OF BEEF with mushroom demi-glace, CHICKEN PICCATA with lemon caper sauce, SEARED SALMON with lemon beurre blanc sauce or VEGETARIAN PASTA. It includes a salad, rolls, fingerling potatoes, vegetables, dessert and hot coffee, tea, or decaf. You will drive yourself or arrange a carpool to Lake George for the 11:15 am start time. If you are interested in attending, RSVP to Sharon Kunkel ( or 518-368-3968) by Friday, July 21. Checks must be dropped off in the Calvary Office or mailed to Prime Timers, 15 Ridge Place, Latham NY, 12110. Payment is due by the 21st.


Just a reminder that the Prime Timer’s schedule and meeting structure for 2023 will look a little different than it has in the past. We will meet quarterly, with teams (rather than board members) planning and organizing each meeting. Teams have already signed up for 2023 but if others are interested, please let Sharon Kunkel know so we can develop a roster of interested team members for future meetings. Mark your calendars now so you don’t miss a future meeting:  June 21, September 20, and December 13.


Dues for 2023 will remain $5.00 for the calendar year. Your dues can be mailed to the church or brought to the June meeting.
