Twelve ladies from Glenwood traveled to Portland June 3 for a nice dinner at Alexander's before attending "Menopause the Musical" at the Portland Center for the Performing Arts. The comedic performance featured a variety of older rock sounds "redone" with words that really hit home with "mature women." The musical is presented across the United States, as well as internationally, and is so funny. After the play, the group was able to watch the Star Light Parade that kicked off the 2006 Portland Rose Festival activities. Everyone who attended had just a great time, and would like to thank Claire Alexander for organizing the outing.
