Weekly Update--December 30, 2018
Happy New Year & Happy Wonderful Winter Time!
We have moved into a new season and this year is definitely flying by too fast. Please join us on Tuesday, Jan 8th for the Business Meeting. If you have a project for the club, please send this over to Traci or myself so we can present to the board this Wednesday, the 2nd. We still have funds to spend for  projects in the next few months, so get them over to us!
We had 2 great projects the week before Christmas---Bingo at the Senior Center and 'Give More Hugs' - were we gave out 430 books to the students and teachers at Raye-Allen. It was a great afternoon, and a fun way to kick off the holiday week.
See below on conference information---we will select our delegates in February, so please make plans now on attending. This is a great event and time to learn more about Altrusa, spend time with fellow Altrusans and have tons of FUN!
Thanks for all you do for Altrusa Temple--and 'Serving through the Seasons'.
'Give More Hugs'
Here are a few pictures of the elves that handed out the books at Raye-Allen. It was a wonderful afternoon to give these students and teachers books that they could take home. We definitely had many smiles with this project. Thanks to everyone as Altrusa Temple gives out more books this year. Can you believe we have donated over 700 books this year with our literacy projects and we still have more to give. 
Wear Blue Day- Human Trafficking Awareness
From Susan Cory-----and I really like this idea since we have done  projects and we are aware of this issue in our community---please wear Blue at our next meeting & we can participate in the Awareness Day for Human Trafficking.
Wear Blue Day for our mtg on January 8th & then post pics on January 11th.
Save the Date: January 11 is #WearBlueDay
Who: You and your friends, family, colleagues, and community.
What: #WearBlueDay is a one-day hashtag event to raise awareness of human trafficking. Take a photo of yourself and others wearing blue and post it on social media using #WearBlueDay.
When: All day Friday, January 11, 2019.
Where: On social media: Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
Why: Human trafficking happens year-round and #WearBlueDay creates a one-day flood of social media content to raise awareness of the crime.
