Current and former city leaders gathered at Oak Park today to reflect on the flood and look toward the future.

The ceremony featured many speakers like current Mayor Chuck Barney and Pastor Paul Krueger.

They spoke about their memories of the flood and how the community pulled together to get through it and rebuild.

“While it tried its worst to take everything – to rob us of hope to fill us with despair and all of those different pieces. It did not win. The people of Minot win,” says Pastor Paul Krueger of Hope Village.

“It was a tremendous team effort: local, state, federal responders as well as community members worked side by side with the national guard and we all collectively said, ‘we got this,'” says ​Major Ann Willoughby of the National Guard.

About 3,000 national guard soldiers worked in Minot that summer.
