In June 2011, Minot and surrounding communities were inundated with flood waters from the Mouse River. The lower lying areas received as much as 11 feet of water. More than 4,000 homes were lost in the flooding including several homes and businesses of our Minot Young Professionals.
Help Minot residents get back on their feet by becoming an Honorary Member of the Minot Young Professionals. The entire $25 honorary membership fee will be donated to the Minot Area Community Foundation's Minot Area Recovery Fund.
The Minot Area Community Foundation is focused on getting people's lives restored after the flood.
