With the COVID-19 pandemic setting the tone, Janet Barnes was honored with a Drive-By Retirement Reception Sunday afternoon. More than 150 cars lined up at the Iowa Lakes Community College parking lot (pictured at left) to make a loop around the college to North Superior past the Barnes' home. The parade was led by the Emmetsburg Fire Department's 1916 fire truck, followed by well wishers from near and far.
