The District Six Conference 2014 has come to a close.  Many friendships were renewed and some new ones made.  Everyone who attended was revitalized by learning how other Altrusans participate in various events.  We all learned a great deal about Lincoln and how the Mayor of Springfield delivered papers to the Lincoln Home!  Abraham Lincoln even made a brief visit on Saturday evening and enjoyed having his picture taken with lots of ladies.

The Lincoln Troubadours entertained us Friday evening with period songs and great voices.  We all were amazed at their voices.  On Saturday, we were entertained with the Springfield International Folk Dancers.  They likewise did period dances and wore period clothing.  Thank goodness we don't have to wear hoops and all those things any more!  Some Altrusans even tried their hand at dancing. 


The Undies Sunday project was a great success as Altrusans donated over 2000 undies for children in the Springfield area along with 170 personal care items.  We learned that many children don't have underwear and those that do many have to share with their brothers or sisters. This project will help many children.
