MOREHOUSE -- After five months of cleaning debris and rebuilding their homes, Morehouse residents may be ready for a night off from work and worries.

A Morehouse Flood Recovery Celebration is planned for Saturday at the First Baptist Church Family Life Center in Morehouse.

"The people in Morehouse have been through a lot with the flood, and there's been a lot of people who've stepped up and worked hard in this flood recovery," said the Rev. Randy Conn, pastor of First Baptist Church in Morehouse. "So this celebration is an opportunity for those who've been affected by the flood and those who've worked in the flood renovation process to sit down and have an evening away from all that."
