MORETOWN, Vt. (AP) — Nearly a year after flooding from Tropical Storm Irene devastated villages along Vermont's rivers, hundreds of volunteers are continuing to work with residents trying to rebuild.
In Moretown last week, members of a Williston-based church group were repairing window casings in John DiCarlo's 19th century home. The cape-style home appeared to be re-emerging looking brand-new and complete with special windows designed better handle future floodwaters.
In Bennington, 260 young people and chaperones were in town offering volunteer recovery work in an effort organized by the Southern Baptist Convention.
Asah Rowles is board chairwoman of Mad River Flood recovery and has lived in five towns in the Mad River Valley. She says she's glad to play a leading organizational role in the recovery because of her personal ties to the area.
