1936 - Early Years


There were three churches in town: Presbyterian, St. Paul's Lutheran, and the Danish Lutheran. The Danish Lutheran church was not actually in town, but 1 mile east of town. All of my aunts and uncles (Petersens and Skows) living in and around Ringsted were members of the Danish Lutheran church except, Aunt Petrea. She and her husband, Walt Glasnapp, went to St. Paul's. Walt was one of the very few non-Danes in Ringsted.
