CHAPTER 14:   
Hello Altrusans! And Happy New Year!
Wow! 2023 is now upon us and I hope each of you got to enjoy time ringing in the new year with loved ones whether family or friends!
Tuesday, please bring items to the meeting for our Promise House Birthday Box project to help package gift boxes to help families celebrate birthdays while at the Promise House and upon moving into their new home.
Items to bring:
Cake Mix
Cookie Mix
Cake pans w/ shapes
Wrapping paper
Gift bags
Birthday table cloths & napkins
Walmart gift cards
We will collect the items at the meeting tomorrow and assemble them prior to the program meeting later this month. (There is no project at 11 am this week).
2 Important Notes:
1) At this month's business meeting we will be slating the Nominating Committee that will be selecting the upcoming members of the club and foundation board so please be thinking about members who should be nominated to serve in this capacity. For reference, our Club policy states:
Each year, during the January business meeting, the nominating committee will be created in order to propose a slate of officers for the upcoming year.  Three (3) members will serve on the committee.   To serve as a member of the nominating committee, Members must have served on the Club Board for a minimum of two years.  Members of the nominating committee are not allowed to be included in the proposed slate of officers.  Nominations for committee members will come from the floor; the three members with the most votes will serve on the committee and the one with the most will serve as chair. 
2) If you gave books for Christmas gifts, be sure to EMAIL the total # to Sarah Davison (and all hours you've spent on the literacy project to date) so we can have an accurate account of the work we've put into this project.
