Branstad to visit region on Sunday

WEST OKOBOJI, Iowa — Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad will visit the Okoboji Classic Cars Museum, 810 Jeppeson Road, in West Okoboji Sunday afternoon to recognize Toby Shine for his contributions to the community.

Shine, president of Okoboji Classic Cars, sold a restored Dodge M37 three-quarter-ton truck and a 1959 Cessna L-19E Bird Dog earlier this year at the Barrett-Jackson Car Auction in Scottsdale, Ariz. Shine donated proceeds from the sale (nearly $1.1 million) to the Armed Forces Foundation, which assists veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

The program begins at 1 p.m., followed by tours of the Classic Cars Museum and Restoration Shop.
