Drove over to Bay St. Louis today for a luncheon. Found out that the reason I was invited was because they wanted me to be on the Board of the Hancock County LTRC (Long Term Recovery Committee). After talking it over with my boss, I said yes.
Am also going to work with the Red Cross on developing two VOADs for Hancock and Harrison County. I'm on the state VOAD board, but we want to have local ones too. (VOAD=Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster).
I'll definitely be staying busy, but I just love this work. Today at the luncheon they talked about all the people who are still living in FEMA trailers two years after the storm. Their faces are haunting.
