UPCOMING MEETINGS & SPECIAL EVENTS
San Francisco Bay Model Tour - 7/24/19: For those SIRS interested in the geological and natural landscape of the San Francisco Bay area, a docent-led tour has been arranged on the SF Bay Model located in Sausalito.  The 90-minute tour will start at 1 pm on Wednesday, July 24. The SF Bay Model is a three dimensional structure built in 1957 by the Army Corps of Engineers as a scientific tool to test the impact of proposed changes to the Bay and related waterways.  While engineering and research has evolved into computer-based models the 1 1/2 acre Bay Model, roughly the size of two football fields, is still used today as an educational facility on the natural and cultural history of the San Francisco Bay Watershed. Additional details regarding this tour are available on our Special Events page or you can just go ahead and register following this link
Summer BBQ
Wednesday, August 7, 4:00 – 7:00
San Ramon Central Park – Alcosta at Bollinger Canyon Road

 

If you haven’t signed up yet, you’ll have to get on the Wait List.  Because of the terrific response from the Branch members, we expanded attendance to 150 and that filled almost immediately.  But, there will be cancellations.  If you did sign up and cannot make it, please cancel out so we can accommodate the Wait List. If you want to get on our WAIT LIST CLICK HERE.

 

We are grilling Chicken Sausages and Marinated Chicken Breasts, served with Ann’s incredible Baked Beans, cold Italian Pasta Salad and Chocolate Chip cookies for dessert.  Appetizers of fresh salsa & chips and mixed nuts.  Water and Ice for all.   Everything will be provided for you, just bring your appetite and what you prefer to drink with dinner.  BYOB discreetly. 

 

Now we need to put it on!  Looking for volunteers for Set Up & Clean Up and for Food Prep and Cooking.  Some of you have already offered help and we have your names.  Please check with Danny Basso, Truman Howard or John Noll to be sure.  Or, see them and offer your assistance.  Danny heads up Food, Truman is in charge of Set Up. 

 

The Cooking Group is putting this BBQ on, preparing the food and cooking it.  This is NOT a catered event.  So, we need your help for a successful inaugural event.  Serving 150 attendees a full meal will take a lot of help.  Please consider offering your time and effort to make this a success.  Looking forward to a fun-filled evening.

August Luncheon - 8/21/19:  All SIR 128 members and their guests are encouraged to attend our August luncheon on Wednesday, August 21. Our social hour begins at 10:30 am with the luncheon starting around 11:30 am. The primary order of business for this luncheon is to approve our new Branch Executive Committee slate for 2020. Little Sir John Kent is projected to be our new Big Sir with his Little Sir to be announced at the meeting. We will have Vivienne Wong, Coordinator of the Indian Life program at the Museum of the San Ramon Valley, present at our luncheon.  Forty years of research is unfolding a much more complex picture of the First People's practices, traditions, languages and culture.    Vivienne is looking forward to sharing this information with the members of SIRS. Additional information on Vivienne Wong's background can be found on our Speaker Info web page. Please plan on joining us at our August luncheon as we look forward to Vivienne's presentation.
