Welcome to Lost Nation, Iowa

 Lost Nation Booster Club

First a little history.
The Booster Club has its beginning in February, 1952.  A group of men who evidently belonged to the Commercial Club decided to begin this new organization.  Articles of Incorporation were approved in August.  Through the years the Booster Club has supported the Gilroy Rustic Park, Rustic Days, Community Scoop, and the City of Lost Nation.  The Club meets the third Thursday of each month at 10:45 AM in the Pub Club.
