Born Jan. 21, 1947, to Helen (Elmer-Milbrandt) Davis and Donald Milbrandt, he attended Evansville High School, Class of 1965. He married Debra (Lawton) Nov. 22, 1969, and they just celebrated their 46th anniversary. Their marriage motto became “If something is broken, we fix it.” As a teenager, Dave started working on the Milbrandt Farms. He moved on to do factory work, and then he went to the City of Evansville DPW, working his way to superintendent. It was there that Dave and “Chew” became almost inseparable; “Chew” was his beloved Chevy city plow truck. After retiring from the City, he worked for five years for MUHL as a truck driver. After retiring from MUHL, he started his hobby/retirement career of small engine repair. Dave could fix just about any small engine brought to him, from lawn mower to snow blower. It was during his retirement career that he met and made many, many friends. Kind and generous, Dave used his tinkering talent to keep his neighbors and his mother’s yards and sidewalks looking great. Summer and winter, Dave donated hours and hours of his time mowing lawns and blowing snow to the deep and endless appreciation of his “harem,” the women neighbors on each side of his house. He also was a tremendous Green Bay Packer fan, and turned his den into a Packer shrine. Dave... http://www.gazettextra.com/20151212/David-L-Milbrandt-Evansville-WI
EVANSVILLE — The Evansville Tri-State Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® will once again be celebrating Pink Sunday in conjunction with Mother’s Day on May 8. Pink Sunday is a grassroots effort between the Komen Evansville Tri-State Affiliate and local religious organizations and community groups to educate members on the importance of good breast health practices.
The program was designed to be presented on Mother’s Day but could be presented on another day that is better suited for the organization’s calendar.
The Komen Evansville Tri-State Affiliate will provide a free bookmark with the four breast self-awareness steps and a pink ribbon shaped seed paper to be planted to remind women to be aware of their breast health whenever they see those beautiful flowers.
Please contact the office by e-mail at email@example.com; call 812-962-2202 or call toll-free at 888-566-3620 to register.
Registration deadline is May 3. Packets will be available for pick-up at the Affiliat... http://www.washtimesherald.com/community/celebrating-pink-sunday-may/article_e88139a2-5e92-5f08-819e-e136568a3afd.html
City Serve Day.
City Serve Day is a volunteer effort spearheaded by churches and organizations here and in Evansville to better their cities through various improvement projects.
Donna and Greg Crews attend One Life Church in Henderson, one of the churches participating in City Serve Day, and are part of a small Bible study group associated with the church.
"There's about a dozen of us (in the group), and we've decided to do a Monarch butterfly way station project. Blake's birthday is Saturday, and I asked my group if they would be willing to work in his memory," she said.
"The project isn't named after Blake. It's a city lot. The city owns it and will own the Monarch way station. Blake's name will not be on it. But our group will be identified as working in memory of Blake," Crews said.
"We will be wearing our 'Justice for Blake' wrist bands, and my life group team is dedicating their work to Blake's memory," she said.
The group will find out later this week the location of where they will be constructing the butterfly way station.
"I am very excited," she said. "These way stations ... What little research I've done, I've seen migratory patterns of Monarchs going north to south down to Mexico. They flock to Mexico but need places to stop along the way."
"The butterfly way station will be awesome," Crews said. "We will be planting trees and bushes and flowers to create a nectar garden."
"Blake was passionate about the environment, preventing animal abuse ... he loved science and nature," she... http://www.thegleaner.com/news/working-in-blakes-memory-30c41516-933b-46d0-e053-0100007f4d88-376566701.html
