Patriotism: Devotion and Support for One's Country
Our June monthly meeting was held this Thursday 20th of July 2019 at the Downtown Civic Center in Gadsden. Our theme for this month's meeting was Patriotism, which is a key cause for Altrusa members. The Tea Room was decked out in red, white and blue, and as always we had a wonderful meal catered by April's Kitchen! Our door prize for the evening was a trivia question...let's see how you would do: The United States became a country in 1776 with 13 original colonies. When did Alabama join as a State? Check out the answer below!

This evening we were happy to welcome a new member to Altrusa International Inc. of Gadsden, Becky Snead!
It's all about that budget...
June starts a new year for Altrusa, and as in any club, business, or organization, BUDGET is a big word that holds a lot of meaning. It is how we plan for the years donations, fundraisers, running cost, and everything else that goes into being a club. Our budget is what we took a look at tonight, and do we have some great things ahead of us! This year we will continue to look at donations to organizations that we have donated in the past, including Spina Bifida, Salvation Army, and Children's Hospital. We will also be looking at adding more to our school supplies for local children and also Support Our Soldiers, our International project. Altrusa is looking forward to raising more money this year to go back into our community! It is through projects like our Home, Garden and Design Show and Santa's Workshop that we raise the funds. So be sure to check out those events and contact us know if you are interested in being a vendor or a sponsor!
Altrusa International Inc. of Gadsden would like to send warm wishes and congratulations to Nina King and her daughter-in-law. They welcomed a new baby girl into the world, Ophelia King! We wish the best to the mother and new child!
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.
