The Stockdale Blue Bonnet Club met May 12 in the home of Judy Childress. Refreshments were served upon the arrival of members for the regular meeting. The meeting was called to order by President Bernice Person. The minutes of the April meeting were read and the treasurer’s report was given by Secretary-Treasurer Mildred Kallies. The roll call was conducted by the secretary.

Billie Jo Wolff reported taking Easter candy in April to the Stockdale Nursing Center as club visitor and also to the April bingo games. The card committee sent 29 cards for March and April.

Club members will be enjoying the annual Summer Outing Monday, July 14, with the destination to be announced at the June meeting. The June hostess will be Cathy Hilton with Pat Rutland serving as program leader. The June nursing home visitor will be Judy Childress.

Program leader Molly Rowell reviewed the World War II historical book, Monuments Men, which begins with the invasion of Poland by Germany. She also mentioned that the movie has just been released. The information goes throughout the war to the peace treaty announcement.

Adolph Hitler began stealing art and monuments, hiding them in 14 places in Germany. The artistic paintings and monuments, large and small, were stolen from the Jews. Items were taken from private homes, museums, and churches. More than 5,000 church bells were taken from churches all over Europe. To transport the more than 22,000 items, it took 729 boxcars, 137 trucks, and 44,174 cases.

The Monuments Men Foundation for the Preservation of Art continues the mission today of the Monuments Officers by bringing visibility to cultural objects still missing from World War II and assisting those seeking to return such items to the countries from which they were stolen. There are more than 2,000 documented works of art stolen from Italy alone during the war that are still missing. The Monuments Men remained in Europe for seven years working with the effort of locating many art pieces and monuments that were hidden by the armies of Hitler.

At the conclusion of the program, Mrs. Rowell presented door prizes to Edith Akin and Sharon West.

In attendance for the meeting were Charlin Akin, Edith Akin, Judy Childress, Helen Deason, Mildred Kallies, Sue McLelland, Bernice Person, Molly Rowell, Sharon West, and Billie Jo Wolff.
