At the September Altrusa business meeting, Lois Roads shared a story about a vintage German doll that was already 60-years-old when she received it as a young girl.
“Share time” is an official part of Altrusa meetings, as the organization promotes congeniality (i.e., sisterhood) among its members.
Although the Washington C.H. club’s current 32 members all share a mutual priority, serving the local community, they also recently received a medal for having contributed to Altrusa International Foundation’s Club 21 Program. Last year that program donated more than $22,000 to support children and their families going through difficult times.
The local club’s upcoming community service projects include International Literacy Day on Sept. 8 at four local nursing homes, Make A Difference Day on Oct. 24 at Carnegie Public Library, and the fifth-annual Loving Spoonsful tasting luncheon on Oct. 31 at the Commission on Aging. Tickets for the Oct. 31 fundraiser are now available from Altrusa members, and may also be available next month at Sunshine Laundry.
