Big Sir Sez

April 2021 

Good vaccine news. About 87% of Contra Costa residents over 75 are being vaccinated.

Hello Sir Gardeners. The BEC approved the restart of Sirs in the Garden Activity. This is an opportunity  for Sir gardeners to provide home gardening advice and help to our members. The activity includes a non-mandatory volunteer  program to help at The Gardens at Heather Farm. Contact Tom Mohrman  at to join.

A committee has been formed to implement the Branch luncheon restart as soon as the County and State gives the OK. Dan Smith will chair the committee. 

Our Branch Secretary, John Meade is stepping down. Thanks, John, for your service. Dan Kohlman will take over on April 1.

Get outdoors! Hiking, Walking, Pickleball,  Fishing, Car Enthusiasts and Book Exchange are open. 

Congratulations to the Branch 8 Golf Committee for unanimously approving the Br 8 Golf Restart Protocol  which has  been forwarded to State SIR President, Stu Williams for consideration at the March 24 State Board meeting.  The protocol was designed as a model  that could be used by all golf groups and the State. Hopefully the State will approve our “reasonable” golf protocol so we can hit the links as Sir Golf.

Thanks to all of you that have paid your dues and renewed your support  for 2021.

Stay safe and well.
Ron Cassano, Big Sir
