14th Annual Afternoon Tea & Luncheon
Please join us on Saturday, May 13, 2017, at 12:00pm for an afternoon featuring an elegant three course service at the First United Methodist Church Social Hall (205 N Fowler St) in Bishop, California. This year the theme of the Tea will be a Garden Party. Put on your best, wear a hat (or borrow one from us,) and plan for a fabulous time.
We make our communities better through leadership, partnership and service.
That is our goal. Founded in 1917, Altrusa is relevant to many civic-minded people who are interested in creating better communities. Last year, Altrusans proudly gave over a million volunteer hours around the world, including clubs in the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada, England, Bermuda, Ireland, India, Scotland, New Zealand and Russia.
Several decades ago, Altrusa decided to institute literacy as an area of focus for the organization; since then, service areas have expanded to include HIV/AIDS and disaster relief. During our last biennium, Altrusans assisted in relief efforts for the Port-au-Prince, Haiti and Christchurch, New Zealand earthquakes, as well as the Tsunami in Japan. Most importantly, Altrusans give their time and resources in areas that are deemed most important in their local communities.
The Altrusa story is evolving every day through club accomplishments. When you visit any Altrusa club, you will see leadership and service in action.
