The service organization Altrusa International of Washington C.H., Inc.— focused on the goal of “Leading to a Better Community”— held its seventh-annual “Loving Spoonsful” tasting luncheon on Saturday at the Commission on Aging.
Under the guidance of co-chairs Melynda Iles and Julie Hidy, nearly all of the club’s 30-plus members participated, with extra time and effort having been put in also by the service committee’s other members: Sara Creamer, Diana Kirkpatrick, Nancy Mowery, Glenna Parsley, Gamma White, and Altrusa President Cathy White.
Because a record number of tickets had been pre-sold, and because Altrusans heard only favorable comments about the delicious food, sociable atmosphere, and multitude of prizes and silent-auction items, members are optimistic that this 2017 luncheon will end up being the club’s most successful fundraiser to date. Recipients of the gross proceeds will be the COA’s “Meals on Wheels” senior nutrition program; the Fayette County Board of Developmental Disabilities’ preschool at The Starting Gate; and one of the club’s two $500 scholarships to graduates from the county’s public high schools.
