January 2023

Twenty-seven with one on the way. That’s the number of new members who joined Lavender Friends in 2022, according to a tally by Sara Vega, our membership chair.

In farming terms, you might say it’s a bumper crop — and it’s kept her pretty busy. As new members join, Sara hosts meet and greets in her home to hear more about them, talk a little about the club and introduce our president, Marilyn Kupcho. She has another gathering planned for this month.

One of our club’s main commissions is to provide social activities and events for our members and guests. To that end, as we emerged from the pandemic last year there was a parade of outings — from visiting back-country wineries and trying out local restaurants to getting up close and personal with a fascinating mandarin ranch in Penryn. We ended the year on two annual high notes: our Turkey Trot, when we gather to walk one of our beautiful trails on the Friday after Thanksgiving, and our December dinner-dance, which as of this writing was on target to draw upwards of 100 people.

Lavender Friends is a club of LGBTQ residents — and their allies. Allies are what we call men and women who join the club to show their support. “It’s a measure of acceptance that is so important to us,” says Sara. It’s also a reminder that we all are part of the same community.

And we aren’t done yet. We will officially kick off the new year with a party later this month to celebrate each other and usher in 12 more months of adventures that bring us together and provide new opportunities to give back.

About Us

The Lavender Friends Club is a group of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender and those in friendship who reside in beautiful Sun City Lincoln Hills, California.

Our primary goal is to create, and sponsor social gatherings and events that will appeal to the broad base of our members who enjoy getting together with others and sharing quality time and their experiences. Equally important is our goal of supporting one another and offering service to our community.

We believe that strong communities begin with solid relationships and our primary purpose is to build a greater sense of community through social interaction, open communication and shared information.
