We founded Prime Timers World Wide and then became its local chapter .
Restrictions / Fees: Membership only, guests welcome. $30 application fee. Asheville Prime Timers is a unique organization of Gay and Bi men in the 40 and upwards range. Anyone younger is accepted, as some members have younger partners.
Our chapter grew out of the, once-a-month gathering, Asheville Supper Club which is 
the oldest continuous meeting organization in Asheville dating back to 1980. Many members were looking for a more structured group with activities throughout the year and not just a once-a-month meeting.
  • Becoming a Prime Timer affords you as much or as little interaction as you desire. We also have excursions and tours locally and overnight day trips.  The group sends out notices of upcoming events to members, but no one is ever pressured to do an activity.
  • The main purpose of our Prime Timers is to welcome newcomers as well as other residents of the area who are looking to meet new friends, experience events with others and for singles or widowers to reconnect with what is happening in the community. 
  • We are not a hook-up group, though we do afford the opportunity for couples and singles to make new friends to enjoy dinners and other activities. We maintain this website for referral of activities both exclusively Prime Timers and community of interest to members. There is no mailing list for non-members.  
  • Our goal is to enhance your Asheville Gay living experience with Discussion Groups | Health Issue Awarness | Retirement Issues | Bridge/Card Groups | Book Club | Social Events | Progressive Dinners | Game Nights | Gym Workouts | Overnight Outings | Camping Events | Travel | National /International Affiliation | and much more….. while still maintaining a great relationship/interaction with the Asheville Supper Club group.

Holistic Perspectives P.O. Box 333, Enka, NC 2872  Phone: (828) 333-0103  | siljoy@me.com or  www.HolisticPerspectives.com For many years now I have been mentoring men and women from all walks of life. It continues to be my greatest joy to accompany someone from “just being ok” into thriving! As a Mentor & Healer I partner with my clients in creating authenticity, wellness and deep contentment, in whatever area of their lives they are seeking change. The combination of giving very practical, livable tools for direct “next steps” while “holding the big picture” and then manifesting that big picture often feels like this: a new client brings me their life or life situation in a jigsaw puzzle box, they lost the lid and forgot what the picture on it looked like. I am good at knowing that picture and then guiding my clients/mentees to put all the puzzle pieces together.
