Staff finds info for WW2 memorial overseas

ThisWeek Grove City Record published a story about the efforts of Menno Polderman of the Netherlands to build a memorial to the crew of a B-17 Flying Fortress Bomber shot down near his grandfather's farm in 1943. Among the crew was Grove City High School Class of 1935 graduate Ernest Trickett, who died in the crash. 

Polderman continues to work with the library's reference department to find information about Trickett. Anyone with any information or material about Trickett can contact the library's reference department at 614-875-6716, extension 503.
