Forty years ago, on August 3, 1974, the Story City community gathered for the official opening of the Story City Swimming Pool. As with everything in life, time takes its toll. For a number of years now, the pool has shown its age and its continued deteriorating condition.

Building a Bridge 

“If we focus our energies on sharing ideas, finding solutions and using what is right with America to remedy what is wrong with it, we can make a difference. Our nation needs bridges, and bridges are built by those who look to the future and dedicate themselves to helping others. I don’t know what the future holds, but I know who holds the future: it is you.”
