Islamic Society in Willmar, Minn., reportedly opts against Garfield School purchase
WILLMAR -- Willmar's Muslim community apparently has backed away from plans to buy the former Garfield School.
Jerry Kjergaard, superintendent of the Willmar School District, said today that the Islamic Society of Willmar notified him earlier this week that the group "had decided they were not going to purchase the Garfield School Building."
The Islamic Society reportedly has decided to buy a different property, Kjergaard said.
