For each of the 23 years that the international organization has recognized Altrusa clubs which meet a stringent list of criteria, Altrusa International of Montrose Colorado has earned that recognition. We are extremely proud that our Montrose club is the only club within the worldwide organization to have been honored each and every one of those years.

A "Distinguished Club" is one that has broad, active participation in volunteer work by its members, is recognized within its community (thank you, Montrose!) for its contributions, has won awards for its projects, includes members who serve at the District and the International levels of the organization, maintains a local Foundation as well as a club, partners with other non-profits, and many more measures of excellence.

Although the items we display to show our status have changed over the years from a yellow patch to white, and most recently, to a pin (all of which we proudly display on a banner), the concept remains the same. We, as members of a worldwide community, dedicate ourselves to making our community better through leadership, partnership, and service.
