Altrusa gives back to community


Altrusa’s fifth-annual “Loving Spoonsful” tasting luncheon took place at the end of October in the Commission on Aging’s spacious facility; it was successful due to support from the community and much concentrated effort by all 30-plus members of the Washington C.H. Altrusa club. Here two administrators from the COA—(from left) Lori Bach and Jowanna Hood—receive a check for $1,384 from longtime Altrusan Gamma White. For the fifth consecutive year, the COA’s “Meals on Wheels” project was one of the three designated local beneficiaries from the luncheon.

Altrusa is a community service organization with a major interest in literacy, and “Right to Read” was the second of three local projects to which the Washington C.H. club voted to donate the gross proceeds of more than $3,200 from its recent tasting luncheon, named “Loving Spoonsful.” (The remaining $500 will provide one of the club’s annual scholarships to high school girls.)


The November program meeting for Altrusa International, Inc., of Washington C.H. featured Doctors Michael Barrows and Cynthia Morris from Fayette County Memorial Hospital’s new Women’s Wellness Center. For a room of women, the topic of “Women’s Health” was apt. The Altrusans appreciated succinct tips such as to help prevent a major type of breast cancer affecting women—stem-cell breast cancer—one should eat colorful berries like strawberries, raspberries, and the like, and drink brewed green tea. Both doctors emphasized that they would like to be invited to talk to as many local women’s groups as possible. Altrusan Vice President Nancy Hammond is shown introducing the two physicians.
