SIR (Sons in Retirement) is a non-profit, public benefit corporation formed
for men. Our Mission is to improve the lives of our members through fun
activities and events while making Friends for Life!
We are almost 60 years old, and our 120 plus branches include over
14,500 members. Our branches cover Northern California from
Bakersfield to the Oregon border and Lake Tahoe to the Pacific Ocean.
Our member expectations are few. Have the free time, be a friendly,
sociable guy, participate in our luncheons and activities and introduce
others to SIR so they can join in the fun.
Membership is open to men regardless of age, race, color or religion. We
are an all-volunteer organization, so our members need to help out when
called upon. SIR supports no outside causes or interests. We prohibit
discussions of politics and religion, soliciting or selling anything to any
Each Branch has monthly luncheon meetings where Sirs renew old
friendships and establish new ones. Speakers are invited to speak on
topical subjects of general interest. Most Branches have summer and
winter luncheons and a BBQ where wives, partners and guests are invited.
Of special interest are Branch activities like golf, bowling, travel, bocce,
bridge, poker, walking, hiking, computers, dining out, wine tasting and
investing. Our list of activities and events is almost endless and many are
coed. If there is an activity you are passionate about and your selected
branch doesn’t have it, we will help you start it and involve others.
Come join us and be part of the fun – and, better yet, Make Friends for
