The club has volunteered all year to make 100 kits that can be laundered and used for about five years. The club also donated seven steam irons, three sewing machines and nine spools of serger thread to Lorrie Healy, who is the Arkansas director for Days For Girls and the head of the local Rogers Chapter. Days For Girls has been Altrusa International's project for the past two years. Pictured are Valerie Katz, club member; Healy; and Connie Brown and Sue Sterling, club members. Altrusa meetings are held at 11:30 a.m. on the first and third Tuesdays of each month at the River Grille Restaurant in Bentonville. Information:
