THE BIG SIR SAYS:
It has been with great pleasure that I have come to take on the role of Big SIR for the upcoming year. It has been an exciting time for me as I spent 1.5 years as little SIR and have managed to arrange speakers through May of 2018. I expect this to be a good year and we have already started planning a training for the Executive Committee members on March 26th here in Rossmoor at Creekside.
SIR really depends on Volunteers to make the organization function as smoothly as it does; That’s why we recognize the volunteers at luncheons. But many of those who continue to volunteer are the same folks who are getting older. One of our volunteers for treasurer, Dave Cutter, just had surgery today, Although Dave is a good guy and a great treasurer we need volunteers to support each of us the way that Walt Braun, our former Big Sir has helped prepare me for this job. So if you are new to SIR or new to Rossmoor and have a background in business or any other area that may help us please volunteer! Come join us at the BEC meeting at 10AM before the luncheon and learn about the jobs that each of the members of the committee. Once you sit through a couple of these get togethers we will get to know you and you will get to know us, Volunteer to help run SIR.
Here is a synopsis of our varioius committees:
David Heflich, Little SIR. Dave has established a designated speakers committee and is anxious to get member input concerning speakers and subjects.
