As the volunteer manager for the Southern California Chapter of the Over the Hill Gang I thank you for the support The Mature Traveler column has given. The response has always been terrific. The Sept. 20 article by Hank Kovell about our opening an Orange County branch was very good . . . but since I have mail sparked by the article, asking questions about the rest of Southern California, I would appreciate it if you would share the following with your readers:
The Over the Hill Gang is a national organization based in Denver, with 10 chapters nationwide.
Southern California is one of the largest. I, as manager, balance and coordinate area events through computerized records, a newsletter and by training coordinators to help run events. We have three sub-regions: San Diego County, coordinated by Dick Goodheart, (619) 487-4656; Los Angeles County, coordinated by Janet Wolfe, (818) 349-5280, and Orange County, coordinated by Ruth and George Ost, (714) 544-7447. For free information on all aspects of the Gang, please send a stamped, self-addressed envelope to OHG, P.O. Box 1113, Solana Beach, Calif. 92075.
