TORNADO VICTIM: Day Of Service To Be Held
The community of Eagle Grove is giving back on Sunday to honor a victim of a deadly tornado.
Aaron Eilerts and three other boy scouts were killed in a tornado in June of 2008.
The tornado hit a boy scout camp in Harrison County. Shortly after, then-governor Chet Culver declared February 24th to be Aaron Eilerts Day of Service.
A number of activates are planned including creating pillow cases that will be donated to area hospitals. Eilerts was working on a similar project when he was killed.
The community is also hosting a food drive for Haiti.
