Remember the 2011 Flood?

On Saturday, the second anniversary of the sounding of the sirens for Souris River flood evacuation, “A Celebration of HOPE” will be held in Minot to recognize the value of volunteerism and the city’s progress in its recovery.

The event will be held from noon to 4 p.m. in Scandinavian Heritage Park. A balloon release at 12:57 p.m. will mark the time that the sirens sounded in Minot on June 22, 2011.

At 1 p.m., Minot will pass a Star of HOPE to residents of Howard Beach, N.Y., which was affected by Super Storm Sandy in October 2012.
