Community responded

Published 12:30 am Saturday, May 7, 2011

On April 19, Warren County and the City of Vicksburg suffered yet again from the effects of severe weather, damaging tornadoes and a devastating fire at The Landings apartments.

The response from the community was overwhelming.

I would especially like to thank the American Red Cross volunteers and shelter managers for rapidly deploying personnel to assist everyone. And a very gracious thanks to the Culkin, Bovina and Fisher Ferry volunteer fire departments.

We appreciate the generosity of our local business community and Ameristar Casino for their unending support. This is truly a giving community.

On behalf of the Mississippi Capital River Chapter of the American Red Cross, I extend our deepest appreciation to everyone who assisted and made a difference.
