Ferdie to Bob

    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    I believe your Holy Cross Lutheran Carl Schultze was instrumental in getting the Park District to get a grant from the State of Illinois to purchase the Willoughby Farm from the Estate. I attended all of the public meetings held by CARD to promote the idea. It is a project that we can credit Carl and Mark Badasch from CARD. I need to visit it. I think Holy Cross was a partial beneficiary of the Estate. A great asset of the City now.

    I believe you're correct Frank. The Willoughby's, were lifetime members of Holy Cross and the Schultze's I think,may have Willoughby family connection. I do know Carl's daughter Lisa and her son Jacob work there every day.


    I believe Carl's wife was a Willoughby. One of the reasons the Sunrise Kiwanis Club devoted the proceeds of a Festival of Trees to a pavilion at the Farm. If you want your husband out of the basement, get him to join the Kiwanis Club. They meet at Schnuck's on Thursday mornings. In the old days they were know at the Lutheran Kiwanis Club. I think Wally Streuter might be the president, a Good Shepherd member. They need members. I dropped out when I retired. I am not an early riser.
