Katrina Volunteers

More than two years after Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast, volunteers still are cleaning up and rebuilding areas ravaged by the hurricane.

Skip and Mary Ann Danforth of Chatham, through the United Methodist Committee of Relief, have been leading such groups of volunteers, returning to Louisiana four times. They will be leading another group from Jan. 27 to Feb. 2.

Islanders can learn more about their experience on Monday, Dec. 17 at 6:30 p.m. in the downstairs chapel of the Old Whaling Church in Edgartown. More information is available by calling Ann Deitrich at 508-645-9506.
