Weekly Update -- October 14, 2018
At the Business Meeting on Tuesday, we approved 2 new projects and initiated one new member---welcome Rachel. The decorating committee looks like they had a great turnout on Wednesday, and it is looking like Christmas with more events coming soon to get ready for the TASTE. Keep selling raffle tickets and inviting your friends, it is going to be another great event.
I need to ask for help again on meals---at the meeting on Tuesday, we only had 24 paying for meals. When we do not have reservations for 35 then the club is charged for the extra meals. These funds come out of the admin fund ($132 last meeting), so this is less to use for club activities & expenses. Any help is appreciate if you can dine with us at the meeting.
Please check the calendar on our website---many activities and opportunities coming up in the next few weeks. See below for more information on MADD-Make A Difference Day--very excited to see how the four rooms will come together on 10/27, along with our International Project-Days for Girls.
 
Thanks to each of you for  'Serving Through the Seasons'-
 Hope
Make A Difference Day
Here is a recap of our MADD project---so excited to see what the seasons will do with each room!
 
Our Lady of the Angels is an emergency shelter for pregnant mothers and their children. Which provides housing, transportation, food, counseling and support to empower and educate them for a better future. It is the only one of its kind in the area.
The facility is home to these families while they get back on their feet and Marlene Poehlman, a fellow Altrusan, wants them to leave inspired and uplifted.
There are 5 bedrooms in the facility, and one was recently redecorated by another volunteer group. Now, we are going to do the other 4!!!
Each season will take a room and do everything necessary to transform it.
This will be an all hands on deck kind of project, so everyone should make plans to pitch in! Together, we can make a difference!
 
What:
No painting
No new furniture
No re-arranging the rooms (fire codes)
New bedding
New pillows
New curtains
New decorations for walls and tops of dressers
A sign/frame/placard/etc that says Altrusa did the room, possibly with an encouraging message and our names to make it more personal.
When:     October 27th 9 – 1 is the workday
Why I Became an Altrusan
This week Barb Sorge has answered---Why I Became an Altrusan  & Why do I Remain in Altrusa ---Barb has been a member for almost 19 years!
 
I joined Altrusa after doing a presentation to the club and invited by then president Karen Walker Stalcup in 2000.  I jumped in with both feet and hands working on Caring Ball decorations even before officially at Joni Lange’s reinventing topiaries.  I grew with this group with the goal of being the best “worker bee” feeding this great buzzing hive of energy to my best.  I fed off incredible women, volunteering at the free clinic and then taking that to co-chair Caring Ball in 2008 with Sharon Tomlinson.  I always had my hand up for a wide range of events, projects and committees that allowed me to make a difference.  The support of fellow Altrusans cannot be said enough.  I treasure each one and every memory.  I needed this opportunity to give to others in my life and Altrusa is the best in whatever tome and talents one has.  All is appreciated no matter how small or big.
