East Otter Tail lends hand on Red River
Hundreds upon hundreds of East Otter Tail area volunteers will never forget their contribution in fighting the Red River Valley flood of 2009--the second "500-year flood" in 12 years.
Volunteer efforts from the lake and farm country of Otter Tail were enumerable.
Compiled here are only a few flood stories and examples of volunteerism that came across our desks as the battle against the Red River raged.
