STORIES: Everything in Its Place
Ann Sulser fits easily into the Hermann, Missouri stereotype. Her ancestors are German, she's over 70, she's married and she's spent her whole life here. The way Ann lives this life is what makes her unique. Ann is quietly dedicated to being Hermann's keeper. Nothing makes her happier than helping.
She walks the town alone as the sun rises, collecting litter and visiting her home-bound friends. She moves worms off the sidewalk, nuzzles dogs and wishes everyone in earshot a good morning. Later she may sew lap quilts for nursing home patients or even set a couple of mole traps to keep Hermann's yards looking neat. Ann serves her town and, as she does, her town serves her.
