Altrusa Club of Clovis held its monthly evening program meeting on Nov. 10 at Muffley’s Backdoor. The meal was prepared by Mary Weigl with assistance from Leslie McCloud, Sylvia Bean and Kathy Travis. Before the meal was served, there was a short business meeting to discuss the approval of two scholarship applications. Both applications were approved and checks will be sent to the two recipients.

The program was supposed to be a flag presentation in honor of Veterans Day, but the presenter had to cancel at the last minute due to illness so the time was filled with flag trivia and additional time to visit with each other. The next regular meeting of the club will be noon Tuesday at Muffley’s Backdoor.
