Germany in wartime is topic at Oct. 14 event

At this time of year, calendars get filled up very quickly. We highly recommend you save Oct. 14 for the first meeting of the Sterling-Rock Falls Historical Society. Our program is being presented by Dr. Ralph Troll, professor emeritus, Augustana College.

Dr. Troll was a young boy in Germany during World War II. He will share the story of his family during that most difficult time.

We first met Dr. Troll when he spoke to our daughter, Kirsten, and her class in Rock Island, and again at the Putnam for Augustana alumni. His program is appropriate and interesting to all, including students, grades fourth to fifth and up. 

Dr. Troll taught at Augustana for 40 years, from 1959 to 1999. There may well be some alumni in our community who had the opportunity to be one of his students. 

The program will be preceded by a short business meeting beginning at 2 p.m. at CGH Medical Center’s Ryberg Auditorium.
