Category 3 Hurricane ‘Katrina’ hit August 29, 2005. POPLC gathered member donated supplies. Bill Maule, Bob Jenkins, Noel Catherwood and Aaron Opheim drove the van (donated by “Woodworks”, thanks to Tom Carless) to Long Beach MS and spent Sept 2,3,4 lending a helping hand.
Grace Lutheran Church was Pastor Ray Ramsburg’s first call after Seminary. The church building took the storm fairly well, but Pastor Babara Hunter’s house was a total loss.
