We are now informally linked with Ventura County Over the Hill Gang. Members of either club may participate in events of both clubs, including overnight trips.
★ PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE - APRIL-JUNE 2016
I am preparing this newsletter a gentle spring rain is falling on my newly
planted garden. At the same time, a group of gangers is skiing and snowshoeing
at Mammoth and Annette M. is recuperating in Bishop after losing a battle
with a tree on the slopes, resulting in a broken leg. She is in great spirits
and doing club work from her bed! Annette also led a very well attended tour of
USC and opera simulcast April 2. Annette gets the MVG (most
valuable ganger) for this newsletter. We are here to have fun and camaraderie.
We had that at Dionne’s H.'s Simply Social in February, and there will be
more at Carol R.'s and Charlie C.’s French luncheon April 17.
next Board meeting is Wednesday, May 11, 10:30 at El Segundo Library. We have
the large room and I am inviting ALL OHGLA MEMBERS TO ATTEND!! We want to change our name to OHGLA—On
the Hill… So have some fun and come and join us for lunch.
I am writing this message on July 4, which is a bit early for the August-September newsletter. Sometimes necessity demands flexibility, even though by the time you read this I will have turned 77 and will be even less flexible than ever
Two weeks ago our members, along with four VCOTHG, enjoyed a wonderful Sunday social at the beautiful home of DB L. As always, great wine, appetizers and conversation prevailed. Thursday, July 2, thirty Gangers, led by ever-capable Fred T., enjoyed an incredible outing and picnic at the Hollywood Bowl. Smokey Robinson plus fireworks were outstanding. In a couple more weeks we will enjoy our annual picnic, and soon after an evening picnic and concert arranged by Gary C.
Now, thinking of October, the Fall Gala has already been planned and all who attend will be rewarded with excellent food, entertainment and camaraderie. Finally, I predict that El Niño will strike in late September; so keep those legs strong for skiing. Thanks, A
