Immanuel Ladies Aid

Ladies Aid 3 of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Seymour met at Schneck Medical Center on Sept. 21 for its monthly meeting.

Members ate dinner before a short meeting conducted by vice president Ann Mahan.

Immanuel’s upcoming 35th annual arts and crafts show and luncheon was discussed. It will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Nov. 4 in both gyms at Immanuel Lutheran School.

Rexanne Ude, executive director of the Schneck Foundation, briefed the group on the role of the Schneck Foundation. Ude said it was formed in 1953 to encourage, hold and administer gifts to the Seymour hospital. One hundred percent of the gifts received go directly to supporting the services Schneck provides. The Schneck Foundation played a key role in the recent hospital construction.

Ude and Norma Christopher, a 17½-year volunteer at the hospital, led the group on a tour of the third floor of the new rehabilitation services area. The group viewed the physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and wound care units. Space also is available for home health, athletic training and specialty services.

Members attending were Carlana Able, Lois Byrkett, Marlis Kilgas, Sharon Klakamp, Evelyn Krebs, Ann Mahan, Donna Runge and Pat Weasner. Guests attending were Selma Mellenbruch, Beulah Scott, Frankie Taskey and Adrene Wunder.
