Extra! Extra! Second 130,000 plus bag day in a row on Friday!

Thanks to the hundreds of volunteers especially the Cheney Middle School students for helping make up over 132,000 sandbags for the second day in a row on Friday!

We got off to a slower start this morning (Saturday) but had spider #3 spinning full bore from 8:30 to Noon and #2 is now spitting them out too.

If you’re looking for some fun in the sand, leave your troubles at home, bring your smile and rubber gripped gloves to Fargo, life’s a beach at Sandbag Central.  It’ll be open until 6 pm tonight.

These guys have a nice looking pallet going.  Tie them high and let them fly!

Quickdraw Firefighter Smith is the fastest wire gun at the beach!   Good job Justin!

Michael, Maddie, Judy, Bailey and Ty in the center were a hoot to work with for the 8 – noon shift.  The forklift guys said we stack righteous pallets.  Spider #3, shoot #8 has pallet pride!

Let’s keep it going!

Where’s the best place in Fargo to find sand, palm trees and a lei?  Leave your troubles at home and head on over to Sandbag Central.  If you want in on the fun, check out the schedule for the best times to come.  http://volunteerstatus.cityoffargo.com

Let’s see if we can raise the bar again today!  Hope to see you there!!
