Meetings

SIR Branch 171 meets the first Wednesday of every month (except December when we host our “Ladies Day Luncheon”) at the Holy Trinity Cultural Center, 1700 School Street, Moraga, CA.  Access to the Social Hall is from the center courtyard.  (Please scroll down for driving directions).

We gather at 11:00 a.m. with lunch commencing at 11:45.  An open bar with soft drinks, beer and wine is available before lunch.  There is a charge of $25.00 to cover the cost each month for the venue, our catered lunch, and the bar.

Reservations are required.  For non-members, a member-sponsor is needed to obtain your reservation. However, if you do not know a member of our Branch but would be interested in attending a meeting and exploring the benefits of membership please contact our Membership Chairman Stew Chalem, stewart@chalem.com, with questions and a request to attend an upcoming meeting.  Should you then have an interest in membership one of our members will serve as your sponsor and guide you through the membership process.

A Guest must attend a regular meeting before submitting an application for membership.  Branch 171 application forms can be obtained at the front table, from our Membership Chairman, or by downloading this website link: Application Form.  Completed applications including Sponsor’s signature should be sent to the Membership Chairman.
