The week that was

Minot Daily News

CLEANING DAY Kudos to the students from TGU-Granville and TGU-Towner High Schools who volunteered last week to help Roosevelt Park Zoo recover from flood damage. About 150 students scrubbed walls, painted fences, picked up trash and debris and generally helped in any way they could at the zoo. Many of the students had visited the zoo in previous years as part of school outings, and were glad to be able to give of their time to help the facility recover. Zoo officials were equally as excited to have the large group of volunteers on hand. Some members of the group also helped clean up the flooded home of a TGU district employee who lives in Minot. The day was certainly valuable to those who received the help, but also for the students, who learned firsthand what it means to give back to the community. The school, its officials and the students should be commended for their service.
