How are we Different from other clubs?
Not What You Might Expect
The Rock 'n' Rollers is an official Laguna Woods Village club, and has been since early 2002. In 2003 we enrolled over 400 members.
Members pay $15 per year dues, and there are no age requirements (high or low) -- so if you relate to the rock & roll music of the 50s and 60s, then this is your club. We are a different generation of Laguna Woods Village residents, the new generation, so to speak. Many of us have kids in school, parents to take care of, even on-going careers! We spend more time than most other residents outside the gates of our community. We are busy people!
That is why we chose to skip the usual "monthly meetings" for members. We just want to have FUN! With no regular meetings, communication with our membership is more of a challenge, but we are finding ways to meet that challenge. One way is electronic communication -- EMAIL. It is wonderful, fast, and free! And of course we rely on our Laguna Woods Globe as well, and try to advertise our events well in advance.
Rock 'n' Rollers is a different kind of club in other ways too.... Read on!
Who are the Rock 'n' Rollers?
A Mini-History of Our Club
In early 2002, an upbeat new retiree moved into the community. Trying to find people her own age to hang out with, she visited a few of the established clubs. Not what she was looking for. So she invited people in her age bracket to meet and talk about starting their own club. She made 35 printed questionnaires and was amazed when almost 150 people showed up! A steering committee was quickly put together, a mixer held, members enrolled, and WOW, the next thing she knew, she was the founder of a brand new club! And that was just the beginning!
It wasn't easy at the beginning... as a matter of fact, there was a dilemma. To actually register as an official club, a club name was necessary, along with at least 20 people who would agree to be members, a list of people who would agree to run things, and a "statement of purpose" describing in a nutshell what the members had in common. Although most of us are in our fifties and sixties, our description saying so was rejected as a "duplication of another club's mission." We were back to square one!
After hours of brain busting...it hit us. It was the MUSIC of the 50s and 60s that we shared... the rock & roll era, American Bandstand, Elvis, etc. That was the common thread! We grew up listening and dancing to rock & roll, and it was part of our lives, our memories, our friends and our fun. We sure loved it as teenagers, and most of us still love it now, and probably will forever, whether we were fifty or ninety. We reasoned that club members who had never met before would at least have THAT in common, and we could build from there! We could relate to the groups and the songs, and probably know most of the words to those wonderful rock & roll classics. The influence of that music was HUGE on our generation, and we definitely know who we are. The "Magic Moments" of "Blue Moon," "Chantilly Lace," and "The Great Pretender" belong to us. We chose a name that described a generation.
We became what we had always been anyway.... the ROCK 'N' ROLLERS.
