Wherever you celebrated the Fourth of July we hope you enjoyed all the festivities offered to us in Northwest Indiana and surroundings.
We are midway through the year and for Golden Times members, we have had a busy spring and look forward to providing a busy summer and fall to our members. Our recent "get-away" was to Bettendorf, Iowa, where we enjoyed a two-night stay at the Isle Hotel/Casino.
There are 42 people signed up for our cruise in September. This is the first time Golden Times is doing a cruise and we are happy with the results.
Enjoy the events our board members have put together. We would like to see more people attending planned events.
