Sam’s is a lunchtime social gathering open to all Catenians, wives, family and friends.
The format is that a speaker will present a talk on a topical subject for approximately 30 minutes.
This is followed by an informal and convivial lunch and an opportunity to get together for a chat amongst friends.

Affectionately just known as Sam’s nowadays, the event was originally established as Sam’s Luncheon Club and was a way for our mainly retired Catenian gentlemen to meet up for a lunch. Today it is a much more informal affair.

Sam’s takes place bi-monthly on the second Tuesday of the month at Ringway Golf Club. The guest speaker and the subject of the talk are announced in advance. The provisional dates for 2024 are below but always check the Provincial Diary to confirm the date and details of the speaker.
