A duration team from Camp Kamassa has been working hard to keep the construction project going at the camp until the Department of Defense lifts a travel ban scheduled for May 11 and more units can arrive. The team is also doing volunteer work for the city. Recently, the team searched through 1,200 flood buckets in storage and found 6,000 masks for medical professionals to use in Copiah and Hinds counties. They also planted daylily bulbs at the intersection of Highways 27 and 51 for the city. The bulbs were donated by Keep Copiah County Beautiful and Keep Mississippi Beautiful.
