Geocache Description:

Our Lady of the Rivers is located in Portage des Sioux, Missouri on the Mississippi River.

In 1951, raging flood waters threatened to destroy the little town of Portage des Sioux. The community pulled together and prayed to Mary, who was given the title of, Our Lady of the Rivers. The flood waters receeded and the community was saved. The shrine is dedicated to the memory of that event and both serves as a reminder of the tremendous power of nature and a tribute to its incredible beauty.

In the "100 year" flood of 1993, much of the town of Portage des Sioux was flooded. The statute was completely surrounded by flood waters.

To log this cache, go to the river side of the statue, and email me the year that Saint Bernard was born. Don't post the answer here, even if encrypted.
