What Is Sons In Retirement?

SONS IN RETIREMENT -  (SIR) is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to create fun activities for retired men. We began in 1958 and there are SIR branches in communities throughout Northern California from Bakersfield to the Oregon border.  

Membership is open to men retired from a full-time occupation, regardless of age, race, color, or religion. There are no dues, fees, or paid personnel. The organization is funded by voluntary contributions as needed.

Branch Meetings -  We have a monthly luncheon where guest speakers address the Branch members on topics of general interest.  This includes sports figures, newscasters, civic leaders and others.  We meet at the Walnut Creek Elks Lodge, on the third Monday of each month, except for May and December.

Member Activities - Groups are formed for activities such as 9-hole and 18-hole golf, bridge (including duplicate), fishing, book discussion, computers, dining out, investments, walking, etc., based on member interest.  All member activities are supported and governed by volunteers.

Special Events - We have a Spring Luncheon in May and a Christmas Dinner/Dance in December where wives, partners and guests are invited.  In addition we have special golf events and bridge tournaments where wives, partners and guests are welcome.

SIR Travel - An extensive travel program is available to all members and guests. Travel events vary from one-day local excursions to trips of several weeks duration to destinations throughout the world.

Our only agenda is to have fun.  If you would like to know more about our Branch or activities, telephone us at 925-322-1160 or email branch116@gmail.com.   We will be happy to answer your questions.
