From The Big SIR

2015 Big SIR: Dick Coleman 

We are sad to announce that Dick Coleman passed away Friday night, August 7th.  We will miss all the work he did for Branch 102, especially in trying to grow the membership of Branch 102.  He was instrumental in the transfer of so many members from Branch 67 when they disbanded.  One of the things that we will miss the most was his sense of humor and his set up before he told the joke.

From The Little Sir

2015 Little SIR: Jeff Dye

Hi All,
For our July luncheon our guest speaker was Greg Bundesen
who represented the Sacramento Suburban Water
District. He spoke of the ongoing drought, water
conservation, water supply and quality. He was well
received by our group also. A special thanks goes to Max Kinsey
for referring him.
For August, our speaker will be Mark Steffins. He trains puppies
to become Canine Companions for Independence. His dogs have
a value of $50,000 when fully trained and then donates them to
veterans with PTSD and a host of other handicaps to enable them
to bring value to their lives. He has spoken to many SIR groups
and comes highly recommended.
As usual, if you have a suggestion for a guest speaker, please contact
me at "". See you on August 11th.
