In 1993, Al DiGiusto conceived the idea to plan a SIR event that would introduce some of the non-boating members and their wives to the world of boating in the Delta. The Sirs with boats invited members and their wives to ride with them on a cruise to one of many Delta waterfront restaurants for lunch. Al coordinated this successful event till his passing in 2005. The event continues in his honor, and is known as the Annual Al DiGiusto Boat Cruise and Luncheon.

The event is typically held in July. Check the Branch 161 Annual Handbook or our monthly newsletter for the date and lunch venue.
