Your “real” job:
Commercial property owner and retired
Your position on the board:
Antique Carousel Representative
Why do you volunteer:
When you are a part of making things happen, there is a great feeling of accomplishment. You meet incredible people.
Why do you think Story City is special:
Our work ethic and pride. Not every town owns or would have maintained a 1913 antique carousel the way Story City has. It is a pretty incredible story, beginning with the purchase in 1938, to the restoration in 1982, to now celebrating 35 years in its current location in the park. It takes the support of community members, as well as businesses, the City, and organizations to keep it operating. 105 years and it looks awesome!
