TODAY: Fairbank businesses host appreciation dinner after last week's floods

Posted: Updated:
FAIRBANK (KWWL) -

Costa's Sports Bar & Grill, Woods Funeral Home, and Don't Trucks are hosting an appreciation gathering in Fairbank today. 

They're thanking everyone who helped fill sandbags and saved their businesses from flooding last week. 

The three businesses made it out of the floods all right thanks to the help of nearly 300 volunteers.

Last week the Wapsi River banks were swollen near parts of Fairbank, but the community says they beat the flood.

Tonight from 5 to 9, there will be food, drinks and music outside of Costa's. 

Here's what Costa's Sports Bar & Grill posted on Facebook:
