If you are not currently a member of our LifeTimers group, you are missing out on lots of fun. As LifeTimers, we “live LIFE fully for the TIME God gives us.” We warmly welcome Woodland’s members who are 55+ and their friends (we have a strict “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy where age is concerned, so don’t let that keep you away). This is a great opportunity for enjoying a delightful lunch and getting to know others while being entertained by guest performers or speakers. LifeTimers also sponsors local day trips and extended destination trips. LifeTimers gather together on the third Thursday of the month from September through May in Maresh Hall at 11:00 AM. If you are interested in becoming a LifeTimer, please contact our Edith Geurin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We want to make sure that our LifeTimers group continues to improve and to reflect your wants and needs. With that in mind, we are asking for your input. If you have ideas for future programs or you have contacts with people who have interesting stories to share, please contact Program Coordinator Debby Bussey.
We also want to plan day trips and excursions that are fun, entertaining, and enlightening. Your suggestions for outings would be most welcome. You can contact Lonnie Shuler at email@example.com to share your ideas for day trips.
Finally, we are always looking for writers for our newsletter. If you are interested in writing for our front page devotional or provide any other content you would like to see in the newsletter, contact Marilyn Gladson.
A LifeTimers one-time membership costs $10; our delicious lunch is $5.
March 16 — SonShine Singers
The SonShine Singers are coming! Our March program will be provided by this lively, fun group of singers and dancers. For those of you who don’t know, the SonShine Singers bring God’s love to nursing home patients throughout the year. They have learned that sharing smiles and hugs, singing and laughter not only brightens the day for the patients but brings them great joy as well.
They present a musical show which includes secular music like Broadway show tunes, a sing-along with the audience, heart-touching gospel music, and finally a flag-waving, all-American patriotic section. All of this is completely choreographed and is lavish with costumes.
SonShine Singers can also be found entertaining church, community and military groups in the area, sharing the love and joy of Christ. Many SonShine Singers are also Woodlanders. You do not want to miss this fabulous group.
Please join us at 11:00 AM on Thursday, March 16th in Maresh Hall. If you are not yet a LifeTimer, you can get a lifetime membership for only $10. A delicious lunch will be served immediately after the program for a cost of $5 per plate.
April 4 — Sculpture Prayer Garden, Fredericksburg
On Tuesday, April 4th, LifeTimers will travel to Kerrville, Texas, to visit the Sculpture Prayer Garden. Info from the website: “The 24.5 acre art park is the only place in the world where the 77’7” contemporary sculpture called “The Empty Cross” can be seen. It is the “Most Symbolic Cross Sculpture in the World”. In addition, seven other monumental sculptures can also be viewed at this location. It is also the only place where all of Greiner’s monumental sculptures are on display. A “Path To Heaven” uses 77 Bible verses, in multiple languages, to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The free garden is open from 7:00 AM until midnight, 365 days a year. Tax deductable donations are welcomed, since the non-profit project is being built on faith in God, without debt.” We will travel by bus, visit the park, have lunch and return to San Antonio by around 5:00 PM. Cost is $40 per person. Contact Lonnie Shuler to make your reservation.
April 20 — Robert Flynn
May 18 — Fun and Games with Barbara & Becky
August 26 – September 3 — Colorado Rockies Collette Tour
