Our collection item this week is a cardboard fan featuring Story City businesses on the back and an image of the holy family on the front. "Attend Church Regularly" is printed on the back. I wonder if these fans were given out in all of the churches in town or if they were made for one specific church. Or perhaps the businesses handed them out to customers.
This fan is currently on display in our new exhibit on the weather extremes in Story City. Visit the Carriage House Museum to see a variety of vintage swimming suits, coats, thermometers, and photos. Photos show flooding and blizzards over the years in Story City.
