O’Neal and Altrusa Forge Partnership
O’Neal Elementary School recently made 100 Christmas cards for Altrusa to circulate at the Northside Nutrition Center through the Meals on Wheels program, plus students created placemats for Altrusa’s annual Christmas party.
Altrusa members [from left] are Ashley Robertson, Nila Keller, Shirley Davenport, Diana Clanahan, Gleta Gorman and Kathy Hadley, alongside O’Neal Principal Angie Rideout; students [from left] are Aaron Witcher, Mya Johnson, Bennett Allen, Kira Strouse, Zoey Vickery, Aiden Cheshire and D.J. Felty.
The Poplar Bluff District Eight Altrusa has taken an interest in O’Neal since around Halloween, when the members volunteered to oversee the annual Pumpkinpalooza event and helped judge the contest. For Veterans Day, Altrusa assisted students in decorating a veterans wall designed to honor family members who have served or are presently in the military.
