Many attend ‘Loving Spoonsful Tasting Luncheon’


For the sixth year in a row, Altrusa International, Inc., of Washington C.H., Ohio, filled the Commission on Aging’s parking lot on a sunny Saturday in October with local people eager to partake of the “Loving Spoonsful Tasting Luncheon.” Proceeds from Altrusa’s most important annual fundraiser resulted in donations last year of $1,384 to Miami Trace Elementary School’s Right to Read program, $1,384 to the COA’s Meals on Wheels senior nutrition program, and $500 to Altrusa’s scholarship fund; and preliminary tallies of 2016 revenue appear comparable. (The first recipient this year will be Fayette County Alternative School, a program developed by collaboration among the Washington C.H. schools, the Miami Trace schools, and the Fayette County Juvenile Court.) Shown at the table holding items for mini-raffles are (from left) Service Committee Co-Chair Melynda Iles, President Cathy White and Service Committee Co-Chair Julie Hidy.


Altrusans recognize that the success of their annual fundraiser depends on many others besides the club’s barely-30 members—others such as Fayette County Memorial Hospital, which funds each year the printing of the souvenir cookbook received by all “Loving Spoonsful” attendees, and the Record-Herald/Shopper’s Guide, which provides periodic publicity. The women and men who as “Friends of Altrusa” contribute recipes for the cookbooks as well as large platters of food for the actual events also make a major contribution. Shown are three “Friends of Altrusa” who, all told, have participated a total of 9 times: (from left), Jean Ann Davis, Debbie Roby, (husband Ben Roby) and Patty Ondrus.


In addition to the $10/meal ticket sales, limited to the first 160 tickets sold, the “Loving Spoonsful Tasting Luncheon” earns money from mini-raffles, raffle tickets for grander items, and a silent auction of impressive themed baskets donated by each of the committees of the local Altrusa club. The winner of this year’s grand prize, Loretta Spies, is pictured with her new KitchenAid, which was funded by a donation from Altrusan Melynda Iles’ employer, HealthSource of Ohio.
