Weather Delays Hope Village

Posted: Updated:

Winter overstaying its welcome may have you a bit behind on spring work that you would usually be doing by now.

The same can be said for work at Hope Village in Minot.

The long winter has translated into a much later opening of the camp designed to house volunteers who come to Minot to help the region rebuild following the Mouse River flood of 2011.

Steve Carbno remains as the coordinator of Hope Village.

He says as spring starts to arrive, more and more volunteer groups are set to make the trip to the valley to continue the process of rebuilding homes.

But a year ago, that work was in full swing by now...this year, mother nature has thrown up a pretty big road block.

(Steve Carbno - Hope Village Coordinator) "Unfortunately we are off to a slow start. We have had teams who have had to cancel because of the weather. We had a team that was to come up from SD that was inundated with several inches of snow. It has been an impact on us. We are about two weeks behind on getting the camp ready. If you remember last year we were already in shirt sleeves and doing outside work."

This weekend the village itself will come together a bit more with the dining tent going up and other work on site.
