Personal thoughts regarding a GCC Partnership:

As I look back over my years as a Board Member and Partner of the Story City GCC many things come to mind. Mainly, why did I do it? ??? Well, in a nut shell? It’s because I love where I live. You don’t serve on committees to serve a single purpose for yourself. It’s not so you can get more customers or sell more items. It’s NOT what can it do for ME! It’s for the good of the town "over all". As our Main Street prospers and grows so do the industries, the schools, and the families. We have a quality of life here in Story City that is truly rare in many small communities. And I believe it’s because so many of our forefathers passed down the importance of taking care of the town and it will take care of you. As I step off the board I am remaining as a volunteer on a GCC committee and I hope that many of you will think about doing the same. "Ask not what Story City can do for me, but what I can do for Story City?".

Thank you
