Altrusa installs officers, accepts new members


Altrusa International, Inc., of Washington C.H. recently installed 2017-18 officers for the international service organization’s 100th year and the local club’s 42nd year. Shown in the front row on either side of the Altrusa sign are president Cathy White (left) and vice president Elaine Crutcher (right). Behind White are (from left) Alice Craig, Janet Martin and Claudia Coe; behind Crutcher are (from left) Troi Penwell, Nancy Bennett and Nancy Mowery.


Three outstanding new candidates joined the local Altrusa club at the May meeting: Katie Bottorff, general manager of the Record-Herald; Sara Creamer, director of the Fayette County Master Gardeners; and Anne Quinn, director of the Children’s Department at Carnegie Public Library. Altrusa is an international association of professionals who volunteer their energies and expertise to community betterment—in short, people who consciously look for ways to be of service. Shown to the left of the Altrusa sign are sponsor Liz Wright and Bottorff; to the right, Creamer, sponsor Elaine Crutcher, and Quinn.


Librarian Anne Quinn, one of three new members of Altrusa International, Inc., of Washington C.H., receives a gift for the children’s area in Carnegie Public Library: a plush bear that had been a prize at the recent district conference. Awarding the eminently huggable bear is (on right) Sonja Seiler, a charter member of this Altrusa club. Literacy is a major Altrusan focus, and the Washington C.H. club members—and especially Seiler herself—have long had a close, supportive relationship with the local library.
