AURELIA - It's not every day that there's a red ribbon cutting in Aurelia, but April 22 was indeed Good Friday in the community, as two new businesses cut the ceremonial red ribbon that morning to officially join the Aurelia business community.

Both new businesses are owned and operated by past graduates of Aurelia High School.

Capture Photography is owned and operated by Leah and Dan Neimeier. Leah is the daughter of Dennis Wieland and Melanie Peterson, and her business is located at 133 Main Street, south of Village Boutique. Leah has been taking photos professionally for about four years. Call 712-434-2493 for an appointment.

Lucky 7 Car Wash is owned by brothers Tadd and Kasey Reilly, the sons of Larry and Shanda Reilly, and is located on the south end of town, on the north side of Highway 7.

A good crowd braved unseasonably cold weather to welcome the new business to town. Present were several Aurelia Commercial Club members, the young men's parents, Larry and Shanda Reilly, and their grandmothers, Marian Reilly and Ethel Hiemstra. Photo by Dan Whitney
Lucky 7 provides its customers with a water supply and a place to wash and vacuum their vehicles at a reasonable cost.
