Tonight was a great Altrusa meeting – very interesting. We installed new members, including Debbie. That’s her on the left, beside me. We’re watching as they install the other new member. I hope Debbie enjoys it. I have so far.
Our speaker tonight was the daughter of one of the members. She spent nearly a year teaching English in a remote part of China, very near North Korea and Siberia. She spoke about her experiences there. She’s also working on the Bejing 2008 Olympics. It was a great presentation.
We’re also preparing for our district conference soon. I offered to put together the gift basket. The stuff was already gathered up and all I had to do was put it into the box. This is a hat box our president bought at Family Dollar store. We’re doing a Victorian theme since it has the letters and pineapples on it. I have just kind of dumped it in to see how it fits but I think it looks pretty nice.
These are used in a silent auction. Then the money is given to a service project that the host club has.
