Big Sir Sez

November 2021

We are back! It was good to meet in person over lunch and fellowship.

Again, many thanks to the Restart Committee, Steve Schramm, Dan Smith, Dan Casella, Rich Knowles and Dennis Mierzwa.  A job well done.

Phil Trapp was the recipient of the HLM Award. Well deserved, Phil for your service to SIR , Branch 8 and your community. It was an honor to have State SIR President Stu Williams present the award. Our Regional Director John Haffner was also on hand to share the moment.

At the November luncheon we will install the 2022 officers and directors. Your support is appreciated.

The activity “Community Service, Sirs Giving Back”, co-chaired by Tom DiGrande and Tony DeLosada Is off to a rousing start. You may have noticed the red Sir T- shirts “I Am a Sir Volunteer” at the luncheon. Contact Tom at or Tony at to sign up and get out to promote our organization and communities.

Reminder , you must make a reservation to attend luncheons. You must sign up by noon, Nov. 1. Send an email to or call 925-901-4826 to reserve. Now that activities are restarting, bring a guest to lunch. The guest’s lunch is on us. If he joins, the sponsor gets a free lunch or Sir merchandise.

We had 112 attendees at the luncheon. Get those reservations in, let’s beat that number. We have made a good start in getting back to normal and your support and participation is appreciated.
