MOC 1

Ten RV/camper sites were completed Aug. 10-13 at the Mullens Opportunity Center, according to Dewey Houck, president of the Rural Appalachian Improvement League (RAIL) which operates the center. The group’s 11th AmeriCorps NCCC (National Civilian Community Corps) team worked with several local volunteers to construct the sites, clear the banks of the adjacent Guyandotte River for picnic tables, and to paint the Jack Feller Coalfields History and Culture Information Center. The sites will serve ATV riders and other visitors, Houck said. The project was funded through a state grant and much of the materials donated by Gordan Brooks, who grew up in Mullens and now owns an electrical services company in Roanoke, Va.
