All Hands Volunteers, Project Minot, volunteers

Wonderful Weekend

In the end the grand total on Saturday shrank from 175 to 85 but we still managed to storm through another couple of houses, bringing our total up to 50. And group of 25 local high school kids pushed our total number of volunteers over 600.

And as if that wasn’t enough of a cause for celebration it was mine and Travis’ birthdays – cue tutus, bad karaoke and lots and lots of dancing at the Starlight nightclub in Minot, North Dakota. People cashing in on the regions big businesses – oil and flood repairs – heard about a bunch of kind-hearted volunteers in their midst and busted out their fat wallets; free drinks all round! Jobs were offered, birthday kisses imparted and toasts made. A weekend to remember, topped off with all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet for lunch on Monday and a stinking cold on Tuesday!
