Mathis Winkler It was 1960. Florine Roper, the wife of a retired Newport Beach doctor, had grown tired of making friends on cruises and tours, only to return home and lose contact. Her desire for a meeting venue with her new friends prompted Roper, then 59, to organize the Thursday Morning Club. Roper, who died in 1998 at age 97, achieved her goal with the club, which celebrated its 40th anniversary Thursday at the Balboa Bay Club. "It gives women, many of whom would be shut out and isolated, an opportunity to get out, meet people and make new friends," said Judy Button, 62, who joined the club three years ago. A part-time saleswoman and independent beauty consultant, the Costa Mesa resident said she found time to get involved only after retiring five years ago as a sales representative for an electronics company.
