If you can spare a minute or two, could you please vote for my local park in the Coke Park Grant Giveaway.  My town of Minot ND was hit with a huge flood, 12,000 evacuated, 4100 homes flooded. Mine included, I wasnt even in the evac zone, but it still got my home.  Anyway the park my kids and us frequent was flooded as well.  If you could visit http://www.livepositively.com and search Oak Park Minot ND 58701 and vote it would so appreciated. We are in 2nd place right now, we could win a grant to fix up the park that was wiped out my the flood, and our neighborhood would have one little piece of normal back. There is no limit to how many votes a person submits.

Thank so much.

Thought I would let everyone know who voted for our Oak Park,  that it reopened yesterday , one year to the day the flood hit.  We went over today for a celebration, it still has work to be done landscape wise, but its open !  Thanks again to everyone that voted.  Our zoo, Roosevelt Park & Zoo is competing in the Coke Contest this year.
