This past meeting, Altrusa of Gadsden celebrated their 68th birthday! We gathered in the Tea Room at the Senior Center downtown and celebrated with decorations and birthday cake. We also sang “Happy Birthday” to the longest serving member who attended the evening’s festivities, and that was our own Judy Hamilton who joined us in 2001 and serving 18 years! Judy blew out the candles on our birthday cake and went home with a gorgeous pot of purple tulips for her birthday present. Scott Browning, our newest member, was also recognized for his service with a pot of tulips
An Un-Boll-Weevil-able Good Time
Our club President Angela Walker and Treasurer Becky Potter traveled to Enterprise, AL to attend our annual conference this year. While there, they attended several meetings and learned many new and exciting things that will be transpiring throughout the club this year, some of which will follow in this month’s newsletter. They also helped welcome our new area Governess Elect Suzanne Allred, who just happens to be from Boaz, AL! We look forward to an exciting two years with Suzanne!

Have you marked your calendar yet!?!? We are less than a month away from our First Annual Women’s Day Out this 17-18MAY2019 hosted at 210 @ the Tracks!

Also, WE NEED YOU as volunteers for both Friday night and Saturday day! If you have not already signed up to work these nights, please contact Becky Potter at email@example.com to get your name on the list!

I am Scott Browning and I am the newest member of Altrusa International of Gadsden, however, I have been a volunteer of theirs for a while now. I became a member because I wanted to do something to give back to my community. I look forward to what I can contribute to the club my many talents and time.
