I lived through the 1948 and 1950 flood. Shoveling the mud and slush out of our living room after the water went down was a terrible experience. I pray that Pembina once again bonds together and beats mother nature.Dick SteffenAnoka, MN
First 12 years of my life were in Pembina, remember floods from the past and how to sandbag at a young age, nice to see names of people I can recognize after being away for 40 years. Might stop by this summer, its also fun to check out the Pembina web site. GO WILDCATS

Thank you Laura for the work you have done in keeping us all informed and connected - through the flood blog. So many people worked behind the scenes in protecting our town, I am truly thankful for our community which banded together.
