On June 2nd, Altrusa of Carroll County teamed up with the Friends of the Cook Library to host a Plant and Book Sale fundraiser. Business was steady all day with this event continuing to be our biggest fundraiser. Thank you to all our members who contributed plants, time and energy to make this a success!

Our May meeting was held in Madison at the Laura Foundation's Adaptive Sports and Recreation Center on Eaton Rd. First, we welcomed our newest member, Teri Cosentino, to our Club. Sponsored by Kathy Miller, Teri has recently moved to Conway from NJ and has eagerly supported our many service projects. We are delighted to have you join us Teri!
After a delicious dinner prepared by the Literacy Committee, Pat Kehoe described the many programs which have been developed over the past few years to benefit children with autism and epilepsy. Pat provided a tour of the facilities and the opportunities offered to families. The barn has been remodeled into a wonderful activity and instruction center. And of course Lisa tried out the basketball hoop to score a 3-point shot!

Five of our members attended the Altrusa District One Spring Conference held in Portland, ME. The enthusiasm of the attendees, the ideas shared, the service projects detailed all added to a wonderful Conference. So often our energy focuses on our local service projects, but my conversations at the Conference prompt me to step back and see the many projects provided throughout New England and beyond. Learning more about the International Foundation’s service project “Days for Girls” helps me to understand the need for such projects and the simple ways in which we can help girls across many cultures. Altrusa International provides me with an opportunity to easily help in other cultures and continents. It is so rewarding, and just plain fun to be with these women!

For the past several years, our members have volunteered to serve the volunteers. The Gibson Senior Center in North Conway provides a volunteer appreciation luncheon to all the Meals On Wheels drivers every spring. Altrusa of Carroll County members support this effort by providing the servers for this luncheon. Thank you to Nancy, Teri, Judy, Barb and Lorraine!
On April 18th members of the 3 Altrusa Clubs of NH gathered to celebrate with a "Birthday Party" at The Bob House in Moultonboro. About 40 ladies gathered to enjoy dinner, laugh, share and play a tough trivia game!
