recognized as a "Distinguished Club"
For the 24th consecutive year, Altrusa of Montrose has been recognized as a "Distinguished Club" in the international organization. The award is based on numerous factors, including the service projects we do for our community, member participation, recognition of Altrusa within our community, involvement in other non-profit and charitable groups, and more.
The emblems recognizing this award have changed over the years, but our members' commitment to altruism, service, and volunteering has remained strong.
