The Helping Hands Traveling Sandbag Team made it’s debut today with a road trip to help in Georgetown today. Â Thanks to these fine young people for helping them raise an important dike to a safer level today. Â Among the volunteers were NDSU student body president, vice president, student senator, and several from the awesome Theta Chi fraternity among others.
It was great to meet Georgetown Mayor Traci Goble and their Treasurer Jen Stordahl, the two on the lower left of the photo below. Â They are excellent community leaders and wonderful neighbors. Â Working together, we all do better!
The river’s still rising even though it’s slowing down it’s rate of rise. Fargo’s dikes are up to 41′ or better. Our friends and neighbors in Cass, Clay, Norman County may need volunteers Saturday. Call 476-4000 or at 8 am, go to Scheels Arena (Urban Plains) to help.
Here’s Hiway 75 outside of Georgetown. Â We’ve all got lots of work to do, and many hands make light work.
The water’s still rising as of Friday night and will stay high for a few days. Â If you’re willingÂ to sign up to be on a quick response volunteer list and join our Helping Hands Traveling Sandbag Team to help more folks during this crucial time, please e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
