The Town of Gibbons is looking for ways to support Humboldt.
Many ideas were brought up by council to send their condolences and compassion at Wednesday's meeting (Apr.11).
After the tragic bus crash on Apr.6, similar size towns are seeing the effect a tragedy like this can cause to a tight-knit community.
"One of the beauties of social media are the positive things that are generated from there," said Gibbons councillor Amber Harris. "One of our residents had suggested that we put forward a book of condolences or something like that so I wanted to take it to council."
Along with sending flags, jerseys and more, Harris had an idea of her own.
"I like the idea of reaching out and having a sister-city type of relationship with Humboldt and paying a visit down the line," added Harris. "We want feedback from the community for what we can do for more of a long-term relationship with Humboldt."
The town will be looking into the ideas and bringing it back to the public on Apr.25.
