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

BBQ report

Br8 BBQ-154111 Sunday was cold, Monday was colder and windier, and EC Ed was so nervous that he was calling his Catholic friends and asking them to say Hail Mary’s and light candles.  Well, it worked; Tuesday, our BBQ day was perfect.  The wind died; prayer worked and the 120 Sir BBQ attendees and spouses/​partners enjoyed a fine afternoon and evening. Pic­tures from this great social activity are posted on the BBQ Activity page.
