Historical society holds benefit for club secretary

The Whitehall Historical Society arranged a fundraiser for club secretary and Whitehall resident Kim Kittle-Braucher, who was diagnosed early this year with adenocarcinoma, a form of lung cancer.

On Monday, Nov. 4, Max & Erma's, 1317 N. Hamilton Road, in Gahanna, will contribute 20 percent of dine-in and carryout orders to patrons with a coupon.

Coupons are available at the Whitehall branch of the Columbus Metropolitan Library, 4371 E. Broad St., and at Whitehall City Hall, 360 S. Yearling Road. Coupons also are available from society members or via email for printing at whitehallhistsoc@aol.com.

Braucher returned to work in June at a logistics center in Lockbourne while awaiting the results of the latest chemotherapy treatments.

Braucher's maternal grandparents were among those who organized the Whitehall Division of Fire. Her grandfather, Howard Morgan, was a firefighter; her grandmother, Marty, dispatched firefighters using a second emergency-only telephone at the residence.

Braucher, 52, and her husband, Robert, have three children.
