Message from the Chairman

Gentlemen,

Well gentlemen, what a wonderful weekend we just had.

Our Anniversary Dinner had the largest attendance in over a decade. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, at the dinner, at the brunch, our DM training, and at our two Play Parties. We honored Jonathan Domash as a Fraternal Emeritus for his long dedication to the club. We also honored Arnna Egan and Gary Alinder from Saratoga Springs for all of their work with us over the years on our Bootcamp run. (Speaking of Bootcamp, sign up soon before it sells out). There are just too many people to thank for putting together an amazing time for all of us. So I will just say thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

Next month should be a great play party for all of us and then in April is Associates Weekend. Watch for details to come.

Leather and LGBTQ Cultural District

March 20
April 17
May 15

The legislation creating the district was unanimously approved by the supervisors and signed by the Mayor last May, and we are in the process of establishing by-laws as we are also putting into place the organizational framework to manage the work of the district.

In 1980, there were 55 leather & LGBTQ businesses, bars and clubs in SOMA...and there are now 12. It is our goal to preserve and expand the leather and LGBTQ culture in the area.

Attention Serious theater lovers!

Have you ever asked yourself “Why are women angry in so many places and situations today?”

Explore and share an amazing play with us about the politics of sex inappropriateness and the waves we are experiencing with the “ME TOO” movement, the ripples of which we will feel far beyond today and tomorrow.

Spike Heels by Theresa Rebeck is a strong statement with lots of appropriately dark humor and a challenge about many misconceptions regarding women and their issues at work and outside the office.

And yes, it has strong language and adult situations, but uproarious laughter too; and that’s what makes it real and pertinent to our times. Don’t miss it. And tell all your friends and loved ones. Parental guidance advised for minors.

Ten Performances ONLY start March 1 and end with our traditional Gala Fundraising event on March 23 with three Sunday Matinees at 2PM and the first 2 Fridays as PAY WHAT YOU CAN. Call the Box office for reservations. 707-524-8739

AND..... WE NOW ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS AT THE DOOR. YAAAAY!

Thank you.
See you there.
