From press reports:  
     Monday, Labor Day 2005, a crowd estimated between 1,500 and 3,000 strong descended on the former army base, Fort McClellan in Calhoun County, Alabama to prepare living space for  1000 or more evacuees from Hurricane Katrina.
     Alabama governor Bob Riley along with his wife Patsy stopped by to view the progress, calling it "Labor Day of Love." It was reported that people from several states also took part in the cleanup.
     Fort McClellan which closed for business in May 1999 (BRAC or Base Realignment), is being developed for local consumption by the "Joint Powers Authority". While some areas are maintained, others have languished. Two barracks buildings are being revitalized for the evacuees. Along with the interior lights and power system, the immediate area needed sprucing up, grass, trees, and brush. It was to this use that the volunteers dedicated themselves.
     Calhoun County, AL has definitely stepped up to its responsibility and is glad to have the opportunity to welcome and respond to the situation in a positive and generous way.
