Thanks for a job well done

WAYLAND

A Wayland man was given a citation by the Board of Selectmen earlier this month for his work rebuilding homes in hurricane-ravaged areas of Mississippi.

Peter Bachman led more than 30 people to Waveland, Miss., a town directly hit by Hurricane Katrina last August, over Columbus Day weekend.

The group helped construct an entire home from the ground up and helped restore two other homes.

The "Wayland to Waveland" committee, formed in fall 2005, continues to raise money for relief efforts in Waveland, Miss. For more information on the committee, visit waylandtowaveland.org.
