To be a successful Main Street community the Story City GCC needs a lot of volunteers who can do anything from sitting on planning committees, working events, planting flowers or working at the Antique Carousel. Age or skill level does not matter. If you are retired in high school or anywhere in between the GCC could use your help and ideas. If you aren’t sure where you could be of assistance but want to help, let us know and we can find a team or task to meet your interests and abilities.
