Rock and tree to remember Sarah

By Julie Bulau, Staff writer

A memorial rock in honor of a young cancer victim was placed in front of the Eden Valley Elementary School Friday, Oct. 12, by local Girl Scout Troop 68.

The rock was in memory of Sarah Grunewald. Sarah passed away Sept. 18, 2010, after a courageous battle with cancer.

The Girl Scouts, along with their parents and Sarah's dad Mike Grunewald were on hand for the ceremony. The troop also planted a tree beside the memorial rock so that Sarah would always be remembered as part of the class of 2019.

Troop members include Megan Braun, Gretchen Burros, Rae Eckerly, Ashley Hansen, Nicole Holthaus, and Kendra Kuechle.

The memorial rock was donated by Darwin Monument, and the tree was purchased by Girl Scout Troop 68 at a discounted price from Turck's Trees.
