Altrusa International of Delta, which is dedicated to advancing literacy and community service, held its annual installation meeting May 23 at the home of Yvonne Rowland.
Outgoing directors included president Nancy Hovde, vice president Jo Rosenquist, treasurer Cindy Lonis, secretary Debbie Atchley, and correspondence secretary Melvia Thebus.
President Nancy Hovde gifted outgoing board members with pots of flowers, which included solar highlights, assembled by our local Ace Hardware because her board went above and beyond, lighting up her life through their efficiency and service.
Incoming officers are president Jo Rosenquist, vice president Demeris York, treasurer Mary Dow, and secretary Daphne Harding. The incoming board presented outgoing president Nancy Hovde with pottery from local Biggins Pottery.
Celebrating the many awards received at the recent District Ten conference, held in Ruidoso, N.M., the event was especially festive. The local Altrusa Club received international recognition for the Delta High School and Cedaredge ASTRA clubs. Thanks to editor Daphne Harding, the club newsletter received the high honor of first place, and thanks to Jackie Schoonover, the website received third place in this regional competition.
Altrusa International of Delta received first place, with a $100 award, for most new memberships. The club placed second in the Distinguished Clubs division for its active membership.
Altrusa International of Delta supports literacy programs, Delta Opportunity School, food banks in Delta and Cedaredge, and a host of other needs. Not only does the club provide financial and hands-on aid, members of Altrusa celebrate their lives through efficiency and service to our communities. Plus, they have fun. If you are interested in making a tax deductible contribution to Altrusa in memory of David Mangum, the funds will be used to establish a memorial to honor him.
