Our club mourns the loss of long-time active club member and local philanthropist Jim Hazel. Jim, age 73, suffered a severe stroke and died October 13, 2013. Jim was in attendance at most club meetings and events throughout his Optimist years and with his vast experience and knowledge of community operations, he was a tremendous asset to our club. He will be sincerely missed. He is pictured below in September 2010 congratulating new club President Terry Eisen at our meet-the-president outdoor meeting.
