New Club in Bali, Indonesia

So what do you do when you go on an international vacation? Build a new Optimist Club of course!

Norm and Liz Sagen who recently spent a well-deserved vacation reported that they assisted with the building of the first Optimist club in Bali, Indonesia.

Norm and Liz Sagen are Builders of Excellence for chartering the Optimist Club of Denpasar in Bali, Indonesia to support a local orphanage. The Charter President is Ni Huh Putu Suartini and they signed 42 members. OI will recognize this as a club project of the Davidson club. Congratulations!

Remembering Myrna Seiben

It is with a heavy heart that I pass on the news that Myrna Sieben passed away last Thursday night due to a brain tumor.

Mryna was a true Optimist, always active at the club and district level, and serving this year as our District Bulletin Editor and Publicity Chair. Myrna greeted you with a smile and friendly word each time you saw her. She brightened your day, just the same as she did for every child she helped.

A prayer service was held at 7:00 pm Tuesday at the Catholic church in Unity. Funeral services will be Wednesday at 10:30 am in Unity, Sask.

Here is her Mom & Dad's contact information:
