Jon's Jottings: Wanda Plourde is special to St. Croix County vets
After 27 years of full-time work in the St. Croix County Veterans Service Office, Wanda Plourde has retired. She will be missed by a lot of vets, me included.
There is a capable staff left behind to take care of veterans' needs with Merlin Blaisdell, service officer and ex-Army, and Geri Campbell who officially took over Wanda's position Monday, June 25. But Wanda was kind of special to a lot of us.
