SENTINEL TRIBUNE Inside Wednesday, June 5, 2013 Page 3 Erickson --- From page l Red Cross Blood Drive "I will always remember staying overnight in a bliz- zard at Walnut Grove. When we got back one of her stu- dents said, 'Mrs. Erickson -- we have made a memory,' I told the student yes we did." A couple of things she was very proud of was work- ing with the Terrific Kids program with the Westbrook Kiwanis Club for 19 years. She also enjoyed the Adopt a Grandparent Day program at the Good Samaritan Nursing Home. She said, "I will really miss the students and the staff. I have never found a more dedicated caring group of people than at Westbrook Walnut Grove." Another thing she and her husband Stan really enjoyed was hosting Foreign Exchange Students. As for her future plans she will spend more time with her foster children that are placed with them. "I hope to do some stb- bing and let the future cone what may," she said. P eterson -- From page 1 i JN.i His fourth booklet centers around Civil War veterans from Walnut Grove. There are many interesting accounts from that period. Many of the Civil War Veterans were immigrants to the area. The accounts are interesting to note how these immigrant veterans affected the growth of Walnut Grove. After the war they were given land grants. One of his next projects he plans on doing, is the connec- tion of Laura Ingalls Wilder life in Walnut Grove. Peterson also has published a book of historical poetry, with photographs. The book is called Walnut Grove A view from the Cornfield. If you are looking for interesting reading with a dose of humor, these are enjoyable books to read. Information can be found on LuLu under Daniel D. Peterson, or Google Daniel D. Peterson/Walnut Grove.
