Single Sirs Dine Out — Sept 2

Single Sirs Dine Out

We are a group of SIRS who like to get out of the house once in a while and share a good meal and some lively con­ver­sation. Each month, one of us acts as host, chooses a restaurant in the area and arranges for a table for the group, usually about ten. There are a wide variety of places where we dine from Italian, American, Mexican or whatever. Of course the prices have to rea­sonable. Some of us may share a bottle of wine. We usually meet on the first Tuesday of the month at 5:30pm and are out before 7:30pm.

Ray Nummi hosted our August dinner and he did such a good job that our host for Sep­tember, Don Atwater said why not go back to Mr. Luckys. So we will do that.

Don is our host and we will meet on Tuesday Sep­tember 2nd. At:
Mr. Lucky’s, (933‑7778) 2618 Pleasant Hill Rd., Pleasant Hill.

It is at the corner of Taylor Blvd. and Pleasant Hill Rd.

Come join us.

September lunch speaker

Speaker Com­mittee Announcement  from Tony de Losada

At our SIR Lun­cheon Monday Sep­tember 8th we will have one of our own Bernat “Bernie” Rosner speak to us about his early teenage life as when at age 12 Bernie was loaded onto a train with the rest of his village’s Jewish inhab­i­tants and taken to Auschwitz a Death Camp! How his life then unfolded, guided largely by his own tena­cious per­son­ality, his wit and his guile is so inspiring, it makes your heart race and your inner voice cheer as he wins they lose! For­tu­nately, his life and the ter­rible ordeals Bernie sur­vived through, was written down, and was pub­lished as a book! It is written in the third person for per­sonal, sen­sitive reasons caused by mem­ories. Bernie will address us as we make it as com­fortable as pos­sible for him to speak from a sitting position. Even though Bernie is a lawyer, he is a rare type; he does not speak loudly! You can ask ques­tions after his talk with us, plus, before and after the meeting Bernie will sign book auto­graphs for anyone who brings his book to the lun­cheon, what an oppor­tunity, I sure will bring my copy! Books can be pur­chased @ Amazon.com: Kindle: $14.72 9 Used: from $9.42 22 New: from $16.98Collectible from $14.95

Your chance to help with LDL

After 6 years of ded­i­cated service on our Ladies Day Lun­cheon com­mittee Bernie Rosner has decided to retire. He was one of the key players in our group and his con­tri­bu­tions will be greatly missed.

We are now seeking a replacement for him to assist with the orga­ni­zation of the reser­vation appli­ca­tions, assigning the tables, and collect the checks. The applicant must have some knowledge of Excell spread sheet. The work can be done on your home com­puter and is limited to the two months before each of our two lun­cheons. There are only a couple of meetings per year and no reports to write. Bernie has gra­ciously offered to assist with your training.

If inter­ested give me a call. Jack Waddell 932 5664
