Hello to all Branch 37 SIR'S. Our September 17 luncheon was another great one. We had a wonderful meat loaf dinner with all trimmings prepared by the Auburn ELK's. Again thanks to the chef and his entire staff.

We had six guests. Way to go guys. Let's all keep this trend going. Our guests were: Bruce Doughty sponsored by Arlan Deutsch. Will Thomas, a possible transfer from Branch 79. Jim Jepsen the son of member Art Jepsen. John Owens a friend of Gene Vogel's from Wisconsin. George Williams who hopefully has returned. He was once our song leader, and guest Fred Barnhart.

We welcomed three new members at the luncheon. They are, Ed Walker, Bruce Gregory, and Rich Ferber. Welcome aboard SIR’s and Bring some friends!

Our Birthday Boys for September are: Duane Voges, George "Pappy" Apostolos, Dave Bean, Barry Walton, John Reimer, and Lyle Westoby. Happy Birthday again and "Mucho Mas".

Profiler Dave Wheatley introduced the September SIR of the month, Bob Watson. Bob is a very interesting Irishman who even entertained with a song from Ireland. Again a great job Dave.

The cash drawings went to First place Arlan Deutsch, second place gene Vogel and third place to Joe Ames. We had four bottles of vino two

donated by Jack Kordich, and two by Phil Johannsen, thanks guys. The

winners of the vino were: John Reimer, Art Jepsen, Jim Maneggie, and Gerry Raw-son.

Our guest speaker was Mora Rowe who is the director of Economic

Development for the city of Auburn. She gave a great presentation and

responded to our groups questions and concerns. Thanks Jim for another interesting speaker.

Little SIR Bill Gray was taking orders for our new SIRS license plate frames. These will give us even greater exposure. If you did not get your order in contact Bill.

Humorist Doug Perry was not with us he is somewhat under the weather but says he will be back soon. He is probably thinking up some bits of wit as I type.

A special thanks was rendered to SIR Al Anderson for his fine job of representing the branch to the Auburn Journal on the Bocce Ball court when they did coverage of Branch 37 and our 45th anniversary.

Our Activity Coordinator Kent Mac Donald spoke on upcoming events, and many signed up for our 18 October dinning out with our Ladies at the Sierra Grill on Hwy 49. Great Job, Thanks Kent.

In closing let me again stress RAMP as it is truly our Life Line, also all should note that our BEC meetings are now to take place at Denny's on Auburn Ravine. The date and time is still the last Thurs-day at 830 a.m. and time is still the last Thursday at 830 a.m.

Your BIG SIR Paul “P,T,” McDaniel


Our October speaker will be Detective Adam Cline of the Auburn Police Department. He has served APD for 12 years, the last 2 as a detective.

He will be discussing the current opioid drug problem in our area. He will be taking questions.

This will be a very interesting presentation!

Jim Maneggie, Program Chairman
