Gravesite sprays assembled for Memorial Day

Members of the Story City American Legion Auxiliary, legion and family members and other volunteers gathered at the legion hall last Tuesday night (April 19) to put together over 500 memorial poppy sprays that will be placed on various veterans’ grave sites at several local cemeteries during the month of May. The sprays honor the veterans for their time and service to their country. Pictured in the second photo are four of the night’s volunteers, which included Dianne Swenson, President of the Story City American Legion Auxiliary, Emma Schnurstein, Junior President of the Story City American Legion Auxiliary, Janet Schmidt, Story County President for the American Legion Auxiliary, and MaryJo McLaughlin, 6th District President of the American Legion Auxiliary.
