of the Month
Big Sir Sezs....
Many of my plants are now blooming, must be summer soon. Nothing gives me more pleasure, trees blooming and plants coming to life with glorious colors. Thanks to all of this I made it through 2 weeks of a flu bug. I should have told my doctor that I had been sick but did not want to postpone surgery for my enlarged prostate. All went well on all fronts.
I understand our luncheon was very close to 11:45pm. Now we should be back on time.
Last month I reported no new applicants. They came in after I had written Big Sir sez.
It is important that we invite our friends to our monthly meetings. We wish to continue our growth so pass out at least one card each month. I have, have you?. Remember that all new members have a smiley face on their badges for two months. Introduce your self to welcome these new friends and yes, smile.
John Mendonca gave a presentation on the SIR Annual SF Giants game. We had 25 people signed up, but we were too late to purchase tickets. Next time we will be collecting ticket money as SIR buys “x” amount of seats early each year. When the call comes out 2014, a ticket price will be quoted and collected so you can experience an outing with SIR. .Leader is Neal Welsh, phone 209-327-2068. Neal and I will have our money ready.
We need to strive for 70% at our meetings. Please attend if possible.

Need a 2013 roster. SIR Elmer Nichols has the roster to make corrections. Elmer certainly has put his all into this project. Roster will be available on the bar during our meetings. Al Furr keeps the roster at his home and will deliver one to your home upon request.
June 11 Picnic @ Mickey Grove Park: The cooking team of Bob Gobbet and Phil Schrock has decided on Ribs and chicken this year. Take advantage of our Master Chefs / Organizers. They do better every year. Little SIR, Chuck Bennett (209-333-8448) will be selling tickets, $13.00 single or $25.00 for two. Tickets will be available at our May 14 meeting. We had a slow start selling tickets in April. SIR, yes, all need to buy a ticket or two and sign up to help with the set up and clean up. This is the first function of 2013 honoring the wives. A great afternoon to socialize.
Balance - $2689.38
