    We are being asked to help in the town of Princeville, NC.  If you look this up it has an interesting history dating back to 1865 when freed slaves established it as a town.  It is not a wealthy town but seems to have a lot of pride.  It is across the TAR River from Tarboro where the NCUMC has set up a disaster relief office in an old Public Health Service building.  They have set up berthing and use it for administrative purposes.  From a site visit in January, the facility looks to be comfortable.  It does have a cat as a permanent resident.  More information on the housing arrangements will be provided later.
