POTTSTOWN PA - About a hundred people brought their appetites New Year's Day (Sunday, Jan. 1, 2012) to the Cedarville United Methodist Church in Pottstown for a traditional "good luck" dinner of pork and sauerkraut. Whatever happy fortune the meal brings, however, likely will be appreciated as much in Mississippi as Pennsylvania.

Funds from ticket sales for the dinner will be used to help pay for a church mission trip of 16 volunteers to travel to Gulfport MS later this year. Once there, members of the congregation will spend several days helping the area's residents continue their comeback from the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina.

The hurricane struck in 2005, church member Susan Smith explained, but seven years later Gulfport is struggling to recover. "Believe it or not, those people are still looking for help," she said.
