I want to show my appreciation for our years in Walnut Grove, and this is a good way to do it, says 94-year-old Glenn Shaw, superintendent at the Walnut Grove Public School from 1951to 1974. Shaw announced the Glenn and Marguerite Shaw Foundation last week to the Walnut Grove Area Foundation board meeting. The Shaw Foundation is donating $10,000 to the city of Walnut Grove. Funds will be made available, but not lim- ited to, the following organizations: City of Walnut Grove for equipment and projects, Boy Scout, Girl Scouts, Food Shelf, 4-H clubs, Plum Creek Park, Walnut Grove Community Club, Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum, Laura Ingalls Wilder Pageant, Local charity drives. Application forms are available through the Walnut Grove Economic Development Office located in the community building. Shaw, who is eager for groups to apply for funds, said, The sooner it gets working, the better. No more than $500 will be distributed annually to any one organiza- tion. Funds will be administered by the Walnut Grove Area Foundation. Glenn's wife Marguerite passed away in 1993. According to Glenn, she was a part of the team. High school alumni will recall the senior breakfast hosted each spring by Marguerite in the Shaw home. Shaw noted that he has spent more than half his life in Walnut Grove. He moved to the Grove Apartments about a year ago when housekeeping became too much for him. He thinks it is a wonderful thing the two schools [Walnut Grove and Westbrook] got together. Hi& advice to retiring Superintendent Steve Kjorness a few years ago was simple. You ve got to find something to do or you will go crazy. The Shaws spent the first two years of their retirement doing mission work in southeastern Kentucky. Glenn can be found at the Senior Dining most days. He presents a brief piece of inspiration and/or humor before offering the blessing on the meal. Westbrook to hold Bike Rodeo On Saturday, May 29th, the Westbrook Police Department will be hosting another Bike Rodeo for kids K through 6. This is to promote safe bicycling and to make you aware of some of the laws that go with it. We will be drawing for prizes and also some new bikes, so come on down and have some fun and maybe win a prize.
