WaHOO! Two new 2011 records set at Fargo, life’s a beach at Sandbag Central

Way to go!  Thanks to the over 1,000 volunteers for making over 175,000 bags Tuesday, we set two 2011 records at Fargo, life’s a beach at Sandbag Central.

We had fantastic volunteer turnout and had fun working with students from Carl Ben, Wahpeton Science working with crews from Sanford Health, KVLY, and many other businesses in the region.

Below are some students taking a well deserved break as they help set the new 2011 sandbag record.

We kept the spiders spinning full bore and switched fresh volunteers in seamlessly without shutting down for staggered lunch breaks

Here’s one of the crews I  had the pleasure of working with today.  John from Sanford mastered the wire gun in short order and the students stacked nice pallets after some on the job training.

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!!
