SENTINEL TRIBUNE Inside Wednesday, May 8, 2013 Page 3 Elevator -- From page1 He recalled while working there in '79-'81 that he was the first employee to fill a hopper car from the ele- vator into the railcar. "We got three at that time and they were big," he recalled. "I needed to get it taken down, but now that's its underway, I kinda feel bad having to do it. But it'll look a lot better for the community when the Little House on the Prairie pageant is on which brings a lot of spectators to Walnut Grove." Hansen's crew plans to drop the structure westward and then rip it apart, having a special machine which will grind up the timbers and one ton of nails the crew esti- mates are in it. After going through the grinder the wood will then go through a machine which has a magnet to remove the iron nails. The wood, about one inch in size, will be taken near the Twin Cities and used as a heart source or bedding for poultry. Walnut will still have one large wooden frame grain storage building, owned at one time by the Masterson family and now owned by Bruce Baker.

Gertner -- From page 1 He said the Lions have donated to many community projects over the years. "It is hard to remember all of the things we did to help the community," said Gertner. He said, "being in Lions all these years the focus of the club really hasn't changed all that much, other than people coming and going." He noted they still have their annual pan- cake breakfast, Pageant Suppers, and ladies night on Valentines day. Gertner was a big promoter of the Club's 150 Raffle. "It is our best fundraisers they also have a football raffle, and a community calendar," he said. When asked why he enjoys being a Lions member he said, "I think it is the fellowship with people and interclub meetings. I like meeting other Lions at conventions and when we do community projects." "As a charter member I have a passion for keeping the club going -- and it is great to be involved with the community," he said. Gertner said he has only missed a couple of meetings through all the years he has been a member. He enjoys attending zone meetings and mid-winter conventions. He has a vest full of medals which show how much he has been involved with the organization. Receiving the Hall of Fame award is one of the accomplishments he is most proud of. In 2004-05 Gertner received the coveted Melvin Jones award for his contributions to the organization. Gertner and his wife, Janice, have two sons and a daughter, 2 grandsons, and three great grandchildren. Gertner said, "I hope to continue being in Lions as long as I can do it." To say, Lions has been a big part of Gertner's life -- would be a huge understate- ment.
