Wave of Compassion

WAYLAND

A local group is heading to Waveland, Miss. in October to help build or rebuild three houses damaged during Hurricane Katrina.

The Wayland to Waveland relief organization is recruiting volunteers to help local builder Peter Bachman of Creative Designs Inc., who has pledged to rebuild the homes.

Volunteers will have to pay their own way to and from Waveland, a town of about 7,000 and Wayland’s sister community, and pay for housing and meals, according to a news release.
