Branch 8

Make Friends for Life

Enjoy Active Retirement

SIR, or Sons In Retirement Incorporated, is a public benefit organization providing for the welfare of retired men from all walks of life who are pursuing a common goal, namely, the enjoyment of their later years with dignity and pride, by assisting these senior citizens to renew former friendships and associations and affording them an opportunity to make new friends through association with other retired men who also face the particular problems that confront men upon their retirement.

SIR Branch 8 meets for lunch on the second Monday each month at the Concord Hilton Hotel, the image below shows our sign outside the hotel. Most of our members  come from the Walnut Creek, Concord, and Pleasant Hill areas, but we also have members from Alamo, Brentwood, Danville, San Ramon, Lamorinda, Clayton and other local cities and towns. If you can drive to lunch, you are welcome!

Activities: We have over 300 active members and we organize over 40 separate activities which are listed in the menu to the right. If there’s an activity you are interested in, and we don’t offer it, please let the Activity Coordinator know about it.

Membership: If you are interested in becoming a member, and don’t know a Sir, please go to the page “An Invitation to Lunch” in the horizontal menu bar. There you will find out how to start the easy application process.

If you have a friend who is a Sir, he can start the process by simply inviting you to lunch.

Men enjoying active retirement: We are a very friendly group of retired men, and we subscribe to the motto at the top of the page! Enjoy your retirement to the fullest! Come to lunch at the Concord Hilton Hotel (see the Invitation to Lunch menu item) and see who we are, then get involved in any of our wide choice of activities.
