Prell-Bland American Legion Auxiliary Unit 271 Members met Wednesday, Feb. 3, at 2:30 p.m. at the Eagles Club with President Marilyn Gausman presiding. Dec. 4 meeting Minutes were read by Secretary Sally Wilhelm and approved as read. The treasurer’s report was also given by Wilhelm and filed for audit.
Wilhelm reported nothing startling happened at the January 9th District meeting. Gausman was thanked for helping with both the January and February Sons of the American Legion stillboard shoots. Nice profits were made in the kitchen. Wilhelm sent get-well cards to Christy O’Dell, Lou Effinger and Bert Yeager; Christmas cards to four members who were in nursing homes – Alma Miller, Charlotte Vinup, Marian Goyert and Pat Thies; and sympathy cards to Ann Edwards, Connie Lee and Fern Baumer.
Thank yous were received from the department’s Indiana Veterans’ Home chairman and IVH superintendent’s office for giving the group’s resident there money on holidays, Christmas and his birthday. Wilhelm recently sent the resident a Valentine’s Day card and $5.
Patti Weberding, the Girls State chairman, reported contacting the schools and, hopefully, will receive their responses by Feb. 14. The revised unit constitution and bylaws were distributed to the members present, and a copy was sent to the district chairman.
