CHAPTER 13:   
Hello Altrusans!
It's the most wonderful time of the year! I pray you all are finding time to get into the Christmas spirit and are anticipating joyous celebrations with your family and friends. 
The Altrusa Christmas party is this Tuesday, the 13th at Harris Community Center in Belton starting at 6pm. I look forward to seeing many of you there. Thanks to Diana and Carol W. for all your work prepping for this event! Please note that the Christmas Party takes the place of our Program Meeting for this month so there will not be another meeting on the 4th Tuesday. We'll see you all again after the start of the new year.
We have a great hands on project this week on Thursday morning with CTLC students led by Jamie Moseley. We're calling it Love Covers All and I know she'd love help putting the blessing bags together and delivering them to the Belton Senior Housing and Meals on Wheels clients. Details and sign-up are below in the calendar of events. Also - we will be labeling books to go in the blessing bags for seniors at 11 am before the business meeting this week so please come early if you are able.
Books to Read Over the Upcoming Holidays! 
Here are your Book Club Selections:
The Sound of Glass by Karen White Mystery Book Club social – Jan.
The Wife Who Risked Everything  by Ellie Midwood Romance Book Club social- late Feb.
