According to Dianna Hahn, who now operates the store with her husband Randy, No- vember of 1986 is when her parents Jim and Jean Mosolf bought the store. Then, in 2006, Jim and Dianna bought it from them. "Dad has worked in the gro- cery industry since 1954," Di- anna said. "I grew up in the business -- it's in my blood." She started working in the store early 1987. Dianna said this 25 year marker is an opportunity to thank the community. In a week scheduled with a coloring contest, door prizes, cookies, and cake, one day will feature two events that benefit two area causes. The afternoon of Tuesday, Aug. 23 will be the Seniors for Seniors Root Beer Float Fundraiser and in the evening will be an event that Randy and Dianna have taken a per- sonal interest in. The store customer appreci- ation supper is going to feature a free-will donation to the help with a project to honor area veterans. Dianna explained that her father and Randy's father both are legion members, she is a member of the American Le- gion Auxiliary, and Randy is a member of the Sons of the American Legion. A few years ago, Randy and Dianna were helping put flags out for Me- morial Day. They found that many area veterans' gravesites were either not marked or the veteran markers were missing. After meeting with legion members they decided to pur- chase new flat markers, which would become permanent fix- tures in the cemetery.
