Sons In Retirement San Juan Branch 102 Carmichael, California

Sons In Retirement Incorporated, or SIR, is a public benefit organization providing for the welfare of retired men from all walks of life who are pursuing a common goal, namely, the enjoyment of their later years with dignity and pride, by assisting these senior citizens to renew former friendships and associations and affording them an opportunity to make new friends through association with other retired men who also face the particular problems that confront men upon their retirement.

Branch 102 meets on the second Tuesday each month, at the Carmichael Elks Lodge 5631 Cypress Ave Carmichael CA . We have over 200 active members and our members organize many separate activities which are listed in the menu at the top menu bar under activities If there’s an activity you are interested in, and we don’t offer it, please let the Activity Coordinator know about it.

Membership: If you are interested in becoming a member, and don’t know any Sirs, please see the Membership page at the top menu bar. There you will find out who to contact to start the easy application process.

If you have a friend who is a SIR, he can start the process by simply inviting you to lunch.

We are a very friendly group of retired men, and we subscribe to the motto at the top of the page! Come and see who we are, then get involved in any of our wide choice of activities. Enjoy your retirement to the fullest!



2014 Big SIR: Don Whalen
My grapevine information source tells me that some people are unhappy about the random seating for the November meeting. I am asking all to humor me on this and please participate. I just would like to see people meet some others than those you normally sit with. Surely, you can sacrifice one meeting to socialize with some new people. The procedure will be that the tables will be marked 1 through 6 with the seats num-bered 1 through however many seats there are at the table. When you get your badge you will get a seating assignment showing 1-1 through 6-20. If you would get 4-15 you would go to table 4 and find the seat marked 15.  Again, I plead with you to participate.      At the October meeting John Sharp and Bob Martinez will have a table in the meeting room to take names for those who are inter-ested in playing Boche Ball. Boche Ball is becoming one of the most popular activities in Sir Branches. Let’s see If we can get enough interest and challenge other Branches to a match or form a league.      Evans Warne will be at a table to collect the $22.00 dues for 2015.                                                                                                                                                  Don Whalen 



2014 Little SIR: Dick Coleman

Our final speaker of the year will be Ted Robinson, a World War II vet and accomplished author.  His reputation is that of a great storyteller and has had a very interesting history.  I am looking forward to his presentation and hope you all can be there.
Travel:  due to lack of membership interest, the Reno snow train trip has been canceled.                                                                                                                                Thanx, Dick.
