Programs Overview

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

Help Wanted

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 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.

Coming Soon

May 18 — Fun and Games with Barbara & Becky — Pot Luck Lunch!
Our May program is provided by Becky Upchurch and Barbara Higdon. As has become our tradition, we will have some Name That Tune and a little Memorial Day trivia. We always have lots of fun with Becky and Barbara. If you like, this will be a good time to show off your patriotic attire as we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Also in May, for the only time this season, we will have a pot luck luncheon. Please bring your favorite dish to share. However, if you are unable to bring anything, come anyway! We are Baptists, and there is never a lack of good food. Remember what Bob Flynn said last month, “With two Baptists, you have a church; with three Baptists, you have two churches.” Well, when you have a pot luck with a bunch of Baptists, there will be food in abundance! Please bring what you can (or NOT) and come enjoy the fun and games.

We will meet on Thursday, May 18th at 11:00 AM in Maresh Hall. A lifetime membership to LifeTimers can be had for a mere $10. For our pot luck lunch this month, the meal will be at no charge.
