Lincoln Sons In Retirement adds another city to its name

-A +A
The Lincoln branch of Sons In Retirement (SIR) is changing its name to the Lincoln/Roseville branch of SIR. This name change arises from the disbanding of the Roseville branch of Sons In Retirement early in 2011. Members of the Roseville branch were given the option of moving to the Lincoln branch or the Rocklin branch. The overwhelming majority chose to go to the Lincoln branch. The Lincoln branch was already meeting at the Roseville Elks Lodge, 3000 Brady Lane. Sons In Retirement is a nonpolitical, nonreligious social group of retired men who meet on the third Wednesday each month for lunch. After dessert, members are treated to entertainers or guest speakers of local interest, such as military heroes, politicians, media celebrities, sports experts and business owners. The primary mission of Sons In Retirement is to socialize and have fun. In addition to the general monthly luncheon meeting, there are subgroups that meet regularly to golf weekly at different local courses or to play bridge at Lincoln’s Raley’s on the second and fourth Wednesdays each month. The Lincoln/Roseville branch of Sons In Retirement has approximately 155 members. There are no dues or initiation fees; incidental expenses are covered by a $15 annual voluntary contribution from members. Three-course lunches cost $14. The Roseville Elks Lodge has a no-host bar for those who wish a drink prior to or with their lunch. Anyone who is interested in joining the Lincoln/Roseville branch of Sons In Retirement or in attending a luncheon of the local branch as a guest can contact me at 408-8708. Chet Winton, Lincoln
