We now have 580 students in our FOUR schools. There is a huge need in the remote villages for medical help. Many never see a doctor. It is all so sad. We have therefore decided to build a FAMILY HEALTH CLINIC. It would be the first line of medical support for local families who do not have a doctor and who cannot travel to one.
Pre-register by emailing Barbara at

A Mine Free World Foundation and Banyan Learning Tree at work in Cambodia!
8 Landmine Survivors Assisted by CLF in Rural Battambang Cambodia
Over the past month, A Mine Free World Foundation team members have been able to provide aid to eight remote landmine-affected families in rural Battambang province, Cambodia. Funding from the Canadian Landmine Foundation has provided 2 new homes to homeless landmine survivors, and 6 breeding calves and cow sheds to six more rural families. One of these families also received a much-needed metal roof for their hut. Families reside in Koas Kralor and the mountain areas of Samlot district bordering Pailin, where demining agencies are still actively at work removing landmines. Projects conducted by A Mine Free World Foundation ( team members Lisa McCoy, Sophea Keo, Nouv Saroeun, landmine survivor Nil Noy and Banyan Learning Tree Director Om Chamnap ( Projects filmed by 2020 Sudios.
Many Thanks to all our team who are making a difference for these, and 9 other landmine-affected families in Battambang. Cambodia. View Gallery


Zero Tolerance

This article originally appeared in the January 2014 ACBL Bridge Bulletin. To join Am Contract Bridge League, email Barbara at

The ACBL is renewing the public education campaign initiated by Seagram, Cronin and Jacobs more than 15 years ago.

The theme, "Play nice," transposes two words we all like to hear at the table ("nice play!").

New posters have been developed and are being disseminated to all clubs.

Barbara Seagram - Zero ToleranceSays Seagram,
"I think that all players are responsible for policing this situation. When I call a director about a problem (perhaps at an adjacent table), I make a point of checking with the director later to see what penalty was awarded. If none was, the director gets to listen to me expound on the subject, and if that doesn't work, I then a) report the situation to ACBL and b) speak to the offender myself."
