Volunteer list being made, but don't show up yet
The city of Wadena is taking names and creating a volunteer list to help with cleanup, but don't show up just yet.
Those interested in volunteering for cleanup on the northwest side of the city can call Wadena City Offices at (218) 631-7707 (then press 0 for an operator). City officials are creating a list of names and then are seeking an organizer to head up that team. Once that's all in place, people on the list will be called and asked to help.
But until then, don't show up, the city said. When the time comes, the place will be the old Pamida parking lot, which will become the staging area when volunteers are mobilized.
Also, there is a second meeting planned today (Saturday) for anyone who would like to get more information or ask questions about the recovery effort. It's at 3 p.m. at St. Ann's Parish Center.
