Remembering the Rexburg Flood -1 Year Anniversary

July 15, 2014 marked a day of chaos, tears, and uncomfortably moist socks. But amongst all the mayhem was found service, fond memories, and many unique water activities.

You may want to have a box of kleenex nearby as we commemorate… the 1 year anniversary of the 2014 Rexburg Flood.

You may not have had the same experiences with the Rexburg Flood that we did…but whether your experiences were painful or a little humorous, we congratulate all those who braved the 2014 Rexburg Flood. For those unable to be a part of the fun, don’t be too disappointed. You never know when the bipolar Rexburg weather may bless us with a little moisture. 😉
