The fourth-annual Merlin Olsen Day of Service is set this year for Sunday, Sept. 15, 2013. The Day of Service is a great opportunity for your chapter to give back, and Sigma Chi International Headquarters hopes to see its members doing good in their communities by performing acts of charity.
The day honors Order of Constantine Sig and Significant Sig Merlin Olsen, UTAH STATE 1962, who was a 15-year NFL veteran, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and an actor who cherished the opportunity to help others. He passed away at age 69 in March 2010.
If you are an undergraduate or alumni chapter planning a philanthropic event for that day, let Sigma Chi International Headquarters know about it. Send an email to honormerlin@sigmachi.org describing what service your chapter will be providing and where you will be performing the service.
Anyone with questions regarding the day can contact Associate Editor Ryan Priest, WASHINGTON (SEATTLE) 2009, at (847) 869-3655, ext. 210, or ryan.priest@sigmachi.org.
