The pinochle group meets at the Pine Cone Restaurant at the intersection of Hess Ave & Mono Way in Sonora.  We play pinochle every Monday from 1:00 PM to 4:30 PM.  Most of us eat a breakfast or lunch starting a 12:00 PM till we start playing at 1:00 PM sharp.  We are always looking for more SIR members to join us.  Call me for more info.

They normally attend a 2 pm Thursday matinee at the beginning of the run.  Three plays are in East Sonora, and three plays are at the Fallon House in Columbia.  They get a ticket price discount as a volume subscribers.  They are inviting our interested members (and spouses, etc.) to join in. If you are interested, please call Big Sir George Kellerman at 533-9083 so seats can be arranged for us.  Tickets are $24 each.
