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.

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
