By Yvette Howl

Portales Altrusa Club welcomed four new members. The new members and their sponsors enjoyed the initiation ceremony developed and carried out by Sue Bracksieck.

The club will put them to work on the upcoming Home Tour to be held on Oct. 3. Watch for Altrusa members selling tickets to the annual fundraiser.

Funds from the Home Tour and the Holiday Happenings in December are used to provide services for the community, such as eyeglasses for low-income youth and senior citizens, books for all county third-graders and scholarships for two students to Eastern New Mexico University.
