Altrusa International of Chillicothe, Ohio

Our Club meets on the 2nd Wed. of each month at 5:30 pm at the Myers Room of the N. Side Library in Chillicothe, OHIO.

The members of our club are saddened by the sudden death of our Treasurer, Nancy Althouse. She will be greatly missed.  As one of her recruits said, "Nancy loved Altrusa!"  She was always willing to give 110% as treasurer,  finance chair, and nominations chair.

On May 10 the Chillicothe Ohio Altrusa club will honor our four scholarship recipients and their families with diner. Following that we will have a memorial service for longtime member and treasurer, Nancy Althouse , who died suddenly in February. 

In July our club will provide meals for the 75 volunteers at the free medical and dental clinic in Chillicothe Ohio.
