Focus on Historical Society

Virginia Gee moved to Urbandale with her husband Don in 1969. Through the years she has volunteered with the Urbandale Historical Society in a variety of ways. When the Leadership Urbandale Class of 2011 selected assistance to the Historical Society as their class project, class member Marilyn Sims interviewed Virginia about the project and the activities and goals of the Society.
