A New Year’s Resolution for Sirs!

Suggested New Year’s Resolution: Get more involved in SIR Branch 8 activities.

Branch 8 Sirs have a wide array of 46 activity choices in 2015, with the likelihood of establishing several more new ones during the year. Check out the activity pictures on the web site and you will see smiling faces of Sirs having a grand time.  Want to know more? The 2015 list of activities, with chairman contact information and  the calendar of meeting times are both available on the web site. Just go to the web site drop-down menu on the right, click on Activity Calendars or Activity Chairs and you are there.

Do you know about  our Co-ed activities? Increasing spouse/partner participation in activities is one of our goals for the new year. 29 of our 46 activities (63%) are co-ed, so there are lots of opportunities for couples fun and relaxation.  A separate list of Co-ed activities with Chairman contact information has been added to the web site.

Have a great time in 2015 enjoying some SIR Branch 8 activities!

One of our Activity Coordinator’s Goals for 2015

The following submission was missed and did not make it into the December Hotline and the editor apologizes for his mistake. The report is also posted on the Coordinator’s web page.

===========================================

One important Branch 8 goal for 2015 is to increase spouse/partner participation in our activities. To kick it off, the Quarterly Family Newsletter was inaugurated in November. It will be sent out once a quarter with news about current quarter activities and a heads-up on interesting future events or activities. The first Newsletter  issue is focused on giving SIR spouses/partners more visibility in to activities that are co-ed.  This “Welcome to Spouses/Partners” message will also be repeated at the December Ladies Luncheon.

Co-ed activities are always a lot of fun. We hope to see many more of our life-partners enjoying our activities in 2105.

Branch 8 Activity Coordinator

Bargain Bites

See the New Activity article in November issue of Hotline.

Our first dining experience will be on Tuesday, November 25 at DJ’s Bistro at 1125 Sutter St., Concord. This is a great little spot serving mostly German food, which is hard to find in the East Bay. (Yes, we know it is just 2 days before Thanksgiving but this will cleanse your palates and get you ready for turkey and dressing) If you want a reasonable night out before heading into the holiday season, join the Bargain Bites group at DJ’s Bistro.
