WHITESVILLE - Some out-of-state volunteers joined in on the festivities in Whitesville.

Members of the St. Aquinas Catholic Church in Georgia, who traveled to the area as part of a mission trip, were treated to a community cook out and concert at the park hosted by the town.  These volunteers have come to Whitesville for 21 years to help repair area homes, but this year they've assisted the Upper Big Branch Mining Memorial Group with construction on picnic pavilions for the Coal Heritage Riverwalk.
