Members of Prell-Bland American Legion Ladies Auxiliary Unit 271 met at the Eagles Club Wednesday, April 3, with President Marilyn Gausman presiding. Minutes of the March 6 meeting were read by Secretary Sally Wilhelm and approved as read. Wilhelm gave the treasurer's report, which was filed for audit.
A birthday card was sent to Shorty Vinup, a sympathy card to the Robert Wilhelm family and an Easter card and money to the unit's resident at the Indiana Veterans' Home. The next Ninth District meeting will be Saturday, April 13, at 2 p.m. Patti Walke filed the group's business entity report, and since she did not charge for this, the members present voted to give her the next year's dues. The American Legion's Joint Spring Conference starts Friday, April 5, and Wilhelm will be attending as she has been notified of two meetings she is to attend.
The last Sons of the American Legion shoot is Sunday, April 6. There will be an informative session on this year's Hoosier Girls State for the local delegates May 1 at 6 p.m. at the Eagles Club. Auxiliary members are urged to come and meet with them. On May 4, the auxiliary will serve the SAL dinner. Anyone who can help is urged to contact Sally Wilhelm. The Vicki Koutz fundraiser is now at $175 with two more small fundraisers to be held. Those who have not donated yet can still send a donation to Wilhelm. The meeting was then adjourned, and a snack was served.
