    This Awards Presentation will be held virtually via Zoom AND Altrusa Richardson will be "attending"  via Zoom while having dinner as a group at Besa's Italian Restaurant.

    While the 2020 Conference had to be canceled and done virtually and the in-person plans for the 2020 Fall Leadership Event has also gone virtual, the pandemic will NOT stop the celebration!  Join fellow District Nine Altrusans as we celebrate the nominations and top honors for the 2018-2019 club year and a special announcement and recognition for the Days for Girls project and results.

    Awards to be presented:

    • Edith DeBusk President's Award
    • Mamie L Bass Service Award
    • Nin Fay Calhoun International Award
    • Letha H Brown Literacy Award

    This-Tender-Land-RROB

    The 2020 Richardson Reads One Book author lecture has been postponed until next year due to COVID-19. William Kent Krueger was scheduled to come to Richardson to speak about his book, “This Tender Land,” which in March 2020 was selected as the 2020 RROB selection. Krueger’s visit has now been rescheduled for Sept. 14, 2021.

    Next spring, a 2021 Richardson Reads One Book kickoff party will be held to announce an enhanced RROB program that will include a surprise element to complement “This Tender Land.”
