New teachers at Storm Lake's educational institutions were welcomed to the Storm Lake community yesterday at a luncheon hosted at the Storm Lake Municipal Golf Clubhouse. The luncheon was sponsored by The Storm Lake Chamber of Commerce, with local citizens volunteering to eat with the teachers and introduce them to the Storm Lake community.
