Marge Johnson of Prospect Heights remembers as if it were yesterday — the advertisement in a Girl Scout magazine seeking pen pals. When she looked down the list of names, she picked Bep Snoek, who was 15 years old and lived in Amsterdam.
There is a really sweet story in the Daily Herald about a women in Prospect Heights, Illinois who became pen pal friends with a Dutch woman in Amsterdam 75 years ago. Well worth a read.
