SIR #53 day tours group to Luther Burbank Gardens


Saturday December 1st 2018 - 10:00am to

SIR (Sons in Retirement) Robert Ripley Branch #53 is not just a social group that meets once a month for lunch and congenial conversation. The branch is establishing new activity groups to give members a chance to interact throughout the month.

These groups include golf, dining with friends, poker, day tours, historical interests and wine tasting, according to Ed Kelleher, chair of the Member Relations and Recruiting Committee. Stressing the theme, “Have Fun with Your Friends,” Kelleher said that SIR members can engage in activities with fellow members all month long, not just at the monthly meeting.

The first event of the day tours group, set for Saturday, Dec. 1, will be a visit to the annual open house at the Luther Burbank Gardens in Santa Rosa. The group will carpool from the Berger Center at 10 a.m. The open house runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and includes a tour of the holiday-themed center and its surrounding gardens. Refreshments include cookies.

The historical interest group is seeking a speaker for its first event, tentatively scheduled for next January. For more information, contact Kelleher at 521-9851.
