Vets and active military need winter clothing

The Batesville Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3183 Ladies Auxiliary held its monthly meeting and Christmas party Dec. 12, 2013, at the post home. After a delicious dinner, President Patti Weberding opened the meeting at 7 p.m. with 17 members present.

Ninth District President Anna Mauck, who was there for inspection, was escorted to the president’s station. An application for membership was read from Debbie Hughes and given to the trustees for review. Members accepted her as a new member. Minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved and the treasurer’s report was given by Bert Yeager.

Kathy Flooder, Veterans and Family Support Committee chair, reported a member requested help for a veteran who is now a security contractor in Afghanistan and in need of winter garb, such as hats and gloves. Members voted to give her funds to purchase some of these items.

Alberta Amberger, Cancer Committee chair, said a member has an application for a grant she will be submitting once it is completed by area physicians.

According to Ellen Kirschner, Hospital Committee chair, the Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center, Indianapolis, is also in need of hats, gloves and scarves. She sent Christmas cards to the hospital for area veterans. Also for the holiday, members decided to send funds to local veteran Joe Radvansky’s account at the Indiana Veterans’ Home, West Lafayette.

Sherri Fehlinger, Patriots Pen chair, reported that two local winners won first and third place district prizes, which is very good. Linda Pulskamp reported that Kaye Pulskamp, who will be taking over the Patriotic Art program from her, went with Pulskamp to Oldenburg Academy to meet the new art teacher. Kaye Pulskamp will go to Batesville High School to talk with the art teacher there. The president said applications of two local entrants in the Teacher of the Year contest were submitted for state judging.

Members voted to give a donation to the Oldenburg Academy annual fund drive.

Weberding announced there would be a dance at the post on New Year’s Eve.

After the meeting, members enjoyed dessert and a gift exchange.
