The "bers" are upon us! Unfortunately, Mother Nature has not quite decided to let go of Summer yet, so we are still heating 100 degree temperatures here in Alabama. Meanwhile in New York, highs are in the "low 80s". If it wasn't for the lack of sweet tea and my love for my Altrusa family here, I would be up North next week! We have had a very productive couple of weeks here, so let's get into it.
Home, Garden, and Design Show/Santa's Workshop
Vendors are getting contracts in as we speak. Santa's Workshop is almost filled, so if you are interested in being a vendor at this show, please let us know ASAP! Submit information here or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The Home, Garden and Design Show still has some spaces left, so please, if you are interested in being a vendor at this show, contact us here or email email@example.com.
We will soon begin to launch our advertising campaign for both shows! We will have billboards going up through out the area, advertisements going into theaters, and flyers for businesses to place in their store windows. Thanks to member Jerri Timm for her great designs!
Member's Work Days for Upcoming Events
We have several great events coming up that require member participation! I have created a member sign up sheet here, so all Altrusa members please log on and look to see what dates they will able to work and what position. You can message me on here or email firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know when, where and what.

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.
