We welcome you to join us on Wednesday, January 16th, 2019 at 7pm in the Tower 2 Multi-Purpose Room to discuss the book “Pachinko” by Min Jin Lee. This is an open event for the residents & their guests who would like to join us.
“In the early 1900s, teenaged Sunja, the adored daughter of a crippled fisherman, falls for a wealthy stranger at the seashore near her home in Korea. He promises her the world, but when she discovers she is pregnant–and that her lover is married–she refuses to be bought. Instead, she accepts an offer of marriage from a gentle, sickly minister passing through on his way to Japan. But her decision to abandon her home, and to reject her son’s powerful father, sets off a dramatic saga that will echo down through the generations.
Richly told and profoundly moving, Pachinko is a story of love, sacrifice, ambition, and loyalty. From bustling street markets to the halls of Japan’s finest universities to the pachinko parlors of the criminal underworld, Lee’s complex and passionate characters–strong, stubborn women, devoted sisters and sons, fathers shaken by moral crisis–survive and thrive against the indifferent arc of history.” – Amazon
Sound interesting? If so, start reading now since this is a large book and join us on January 16th at 7pm in the Tower 2 Multi-Purpose Room. We hope to see you there!
A great way to get to know fellow residents is to join in on one of our weekly social groups! Even if you’ve never played Bridge or Rummikub, this is a great way not just to learn to play but to develop some potential life-long friends!
Join us every Tuesday night at 7pm for a fun and relaxed playing environment! Now on Tuesday nights in the Tower 1 Banquet Room (on the Tuesdays when there’s a Board Meeting we will meet in the Tower 2 Multi-Purpose Room). Hope to see you there!
All residents are welcome to join fellow West Ocean residents to play Rummikub every Thursday night at 6pm in the Tower 2 Multi-Purpose Room. New players are always welcome!!

Join us this coming Monday, Dec 17th as we travel the roads of the USA and Canada!
“Dew Drop and Weed, Osoyoos and Mouse Jaw, Medicine Hat and Wabigoon are just a few of the highlights of our cross-two-countries month-long road trip. We saw Jonesboro, Greensboro, Greenwood, and at least four Greenvilles. Our 7,782 mile adventure took us through California’s Gold Country, across five Canadian provinces, through Ottawa and Thousand Islands, into Washington DC and Knoxville Tennessee, along the Natchez Trace, into the middle of Mississippi, and across Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. This was our tenth cross-country trip, and we tried to see places that we had always wanted to see but had missed before. Along the way, we discovered and learned much more than we expected.” – our host, Olga Lichten
