Celebrate the holidays with the Baby Boomers Club as we end the year with one of our most anticipated bands! The Petty Breakers are the nations #1 Tom Petty and the Heart Breakers tribute band.  They have played at venues throughout the USA and we are delighted to be able to offer this outstanding band.  We will also be providing hor d'oeuvres as our way of saying thank you for another successful year.  But that's not all, we've been told that a special visitor from up north will be making an appearance- obviously he's a Petty fan too!  Dress in your holiday attire and come make a holiday memory.  Tickets are $10 for members and $15 for guests.  Doors open at 6:00 pm and the band starts at 7:00. Pre-sales for club members only are from 1-3 the day of the event. 


Thank you to everyone who came to the First Friday Holiday Party! Approximately 150 guests showed up and had a great time.  Sharone Rosen and Mark Hochberg did a wonderful job entertaining us, and, the Dutch of Fizz Band was awesome as well.  The raffle was a lot of fun and we were able to give out over $250 in prizes!  The social team has been getting a lot of great suggestions from all of you who filled out surveys and are busy planning January's event based on your suggestions.  So, "Save the Date" - Friday, January 4 at 6:00. One of the activities will be a Gift Exchange.  Bring in a wrapped gift, and, pick up a new mystery gift.  (You'll never know what you'll find.)  More entertainment details along with a flyer will be coming to you soon.
Just a friendly reminder again that we listened to member comments about wanting to bring their own alcohol to the dances which is against GRF policies if they are providing the alcohol, so beginning in January you can BYOE (bring your own everything!!!) There will be no GRF bar.


Tell us what you'd like to see, hear and experience at our First Friday Socials, Saturday Night Dances, Woodstock Celebration, the day and multi-day trips being planned and more and be eligible to win one of four $25 gift cards. One entry per person please and surveys must be submitted by January 28, 2019 to be entered in our drawing.  Winners will be announced February 1, 2019 at the First Friday Social.  A few people filled out survey forms at the last Friday Social and we will have more forms if you want one at the December 15th dance party.
The new membership forms for 2019 are ready.   You can download and print the membership form. You can also renew in person at any of our events.  Don't miss out on all the fun, join us as we celebrate 2019 Baby Boomer Style!  Have a friend you want to join, share the peace, love and music with them by giving them a copy of our membership form. Do you know someone who's just moved to Laguna Woods?  Share the membership form with them too.  Together we can help fill the world, and Laguna Woods, with Peace, Love and Music!   MEMBERSHIP FORM

Changing Positions
Vice President
We are excited to announce that Fritzi Rodric is moving from social chair to Vice President.
We are sad to announce the departure from the board of Kathy Gaskins and Phil Doran.  Kathy has served in roles ranging from Club President to Woodstock Chair.  She will be continuing on in the Woodstock committee though!!! Phil has also been on the board for a few years, he is the outgoing vice president and we will all miss his sense of humor.
