Tucumcari Club News


Tucumcari Outdoor Classroom Earth Day 2012 – For the past 8 years, Altrusa has been a major volunteer for the Tucumcari Outdoor Classroom Earth Day Events. Ladies hand out water, assist speakers, and clean up after the event. For 2012, there were close to 800 participants from 5 different local schools. Altrusa also purchased magnifying glasses for the Tucumcari Elementary School for use at the Outdoor Classroom. This project partners with many groups. A few include Daughters of the American Revolution, Canadian River SWCD, Tucumcari Public Schools, and the City of Tucumcari.


Trigg Hospital Mammo Capes – All women have annual exams that should be done for prevention. Altrusa of Tucumcari just wanted these ladies to feel more “covered” and comfortable. Altrusa had 35 cloth mammo capes designed and made for our community ladies to make something that isn’t much fun, just a little bit easier.


Tucumcari Trash Pick-up – Altrusa originally partnered with Kiwanas of Tucumcari to pick up trash 4 times a year on a 1 mile stretch along Route 66 Blvd in Tucumcari. Kiwanas has since dissolved, but Altrusa is still dedicated to “cleaning up” the community.

Dr. Seuss’s Birthday    Altrusa partners with the Tucumcari Public Library to bring the community students together to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s Birthday. This includes having Dr. Seuss books read aloud to the students and providing door prizes for those involved. Usually there is a surprise visit by “The Cat In The Hat.”


Tucumcari Community Easter Egg Hunt – Altrusa is one of the main sponsors for the Tucumcari Community Easter Egg Hunt. Members also volunteer to meet and assist in stuffing candy in the Easter Eggs to be used in the hunt.
