Minot Flood Relief Update
LIONS CLUBS OF MANDAN LEAD EFFORTS TO FEED VOLUNTEERS IN THE 2011 FLOOD FIGHT
On May 25, 2011, Lions Kevin and Pat Vannett of the Mandan Dacotah Lions approached Mandan Mayor Tim Helbling with the idea of organizing food for all of the volunteers that would be needed to fight the flood. He replied “that would be awesome”. The Mandan Dacotah Lions board of directors quickly acted to approve the project and Mandan Lions Club President; Jeff Erickson called his club for workers and within THREE hours Kevin and Pat had organized donations of water, food, and tents. The grills were lit and our journey began.
Because of the working relationship that all of the Lions of Mandan have with business in our community, those businesses quickly got on board to support this project. Many businesses stepped up to the plate when asked to help. Many called us to ask “what do you need, we want to help”. This was truly a community wide event where every church, organization, business and private person united in the fight to save our city.
Soon to be Lion, Cindy Sandvick and other community volunteers serve food to our National Guard and the sandbag teams during the “Race to Sunrise” all night sandbagging event held at the Raging Rivers sandbag site in Mandan from 10 p.m. June 1st to 6 a.m. June 2nd
The Red Cross soon came by and was quite impressed with the organization that was in place. They soon were calling to see where their volunteers could help us. We were able to assist them in finding the areas of our community where their trucks could go, but we could not. The Salvation Army soon was on the scene and again they depended on the local Lions club to help them get to the places that were without food and water.
These cookbooks will be professionally published by early fall, 2013 and contain special artwork and tidbits of interest
It is sure to be treasured by Lions and others for years to come
