Thanks to sandbaggers

  • Print

My family and I would like to thank the many wonderful volunteers who came out to help residents sandbag.

We live on Christie Road where several properties required significant sandbag dikes. Several busloads of folks and many others just showing up came out to work with the neighbours to get the job done.

They came, young and old, from the city and country, to answer the call, working side by side in the mud and dirt to make lighter the load for affected homeowners.

As I look over the pictures I took over the two days that our dike was built, I see over and over again many smiling faces as people dug in and helped out. They met old friends and made new ones. I know we made many new friends over the past few days and we are very grateful to each one of the volunteers.

There isn’t another place in the world that can match Winnipeg and Manitoba for community spirit when it comes to helping out our neighbours.
