3 Score-More or Less

Emptynester1The Prime Timers are members of Etz Chaim who are old enough not to have children living at home. Originally known as the Empty Nesters, they join together on various occasions for new friendships, cultural, and social events. It was started in the late 1990s and has continued for the last 12 or so years. Events are planned and carried out by members of the planning committee, who meet to map out activities for the rest of the year. 

Emptynester3It is a pay-as-you-go endeavor to cover actual expenses. Our activities have included visits to museums, the Atlanta Botanical Garden, the Oakland Cemetery, The Governor’s Mansion, and quite a number of plays, musicals, and restaurants. Outdoor activities included a ride on the Blue Ridge Train, various picnics to both Blue Ridge and Red Top Mountain as well as to Big Canoe. Yearly activities include a Shabbat Dinner with a speaker in the early spring and an annual Chanukah Party at someone’s home. The average number of people that have attended some of the activities is about 20.

If you are new to Atlanta, the Prime Timers are a great way for you to connect with like-minded people!
