LDN - Top Stories
were remembered in Mount Pulaski.
The Mount Pulaski Scroggin-Gee VFW
Post 777 conducted its 25th annual distribution of Christmas
gifts to U.S. armed forces veterans -- 16 this year -- in the Mount Pulaski Vonderlieth Living Center and adjoining Vonderlieth condos.
Pictured here is Louise Voelker, former Unit 777 Auxiliary
president for many years, and Roger Bates, Post 777 commander,
with U.S. Navy veteran Lt. Emmett Shellhammer, who served during
World War II. Like all of
the veterans, Shellhammer has interesting stories to tell of his
experiences. And thanks to the Mount Pulaski post, his service
was not forgotten this Christmas season.

This undated photo
of a painting by artist Mort Kuntsler shows "Washington's
Crossing: McKonkey's Ferry, Dec. 26, 1776." On Monday, the
New York Historical Society unveiled the more historically accurate version
of George Washington's 1776 Christmas crossing, showing his troops in the
dead of night during a snowstorm, and without the stars-and-stripes flag,
which hadn't been adopted yet.
Watch your baby's cues.
If your baby starts to seem over-stimulated, it may be
time to sneak off to a quiet room for some one-on-one
time for the two of you. Some babies are sensitive to
too much activity, so if baby seems to need time…enjoy
that little break together.
