On Sunday, Feb 11, folks gathered at the parish house of the Federated Church in Edgartown for a jambalaya dinner to raise funds for Katrina victims. The dinner was hosted by the Federated Church Youth Group, which recently returned after taking a Mission Trip to help rebuild after the hurricane. Guests enjoyed authentic cuisine, music, and a slideshow of the group's trip to New Orleans.
