The 2013 Story City Lions Club Community Service Award was presented to Elaine Tekippe at the Lions meeting held on Thursday, Nov. 21. Elaine has been very involved in the Story City community for the past several years and continues to promote Story City on a regular basis. She was involved with the Community Club, serving in various capacities. The Main Street project in downtown Story City benefited from Elaine’s help, as she was instrumental in getting it off to a successful start. She still assists with the Main Street project through the Greater Chamber Connection. Elaine has also served on the Economic Development Board for six years. She was elected to the Roland-Story Community School Board and served for six years as well. She has also been on the Reliance State Bank Board since 2000 and continues to help promote the bank. We thank and congratulate Elaine Tekippe for her service to our communities.
