At our Saturday Coffee and Conversation several of our FOG Military Veteran Members received free coffee from Starbucks in honor of Veterans Day. Afterwards FOG veterans and friends met in the California Pizza Kitchen and the veterans were honored with a free lunch and coupons for additional meals from the restaurant.
Veterans Day, also known as Armistice Day, is always celebrated on November 11 to commemorate the signing of the treaty to end World War One. It went into effect on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.
We also have several Veteran Members on the Veterans Wall of Honor in the LGBT Center. Their names are placed there because of their service and additional contributions to society.
Our organization began when our two founding members met through an ad one of them had placed in a local newspaper, looking for like-minded gay men over 40 who wanted to “socialize and pursue educational, entertainment and cultural interests”. The first meeting took place on September 7, 1993 with 10 people in attendance and we now number around 200 members. Learn more on our About page.
We cordially invite all gentlemen who would like to have a chance to socialize, engage in one or more of our many monthly activities and gain new friends, to join us. You would be most welcome, indeed.
Can we help you find something?
