Galveston relay celebrates post-Ike comeback
GalvestonOne year after seeing many of their homes and businesses demolished by Hurricane Ike, residents of Galveston, Texas, took part in a torch relay that marked efforts to return life to normal. A group of CNP employees was part of the procession that included the Galveston Coast Guard Color Guard, first responders and elected officials. The groups took turns carrying a ceremonial torch along the three-mile route that ended in downtown Galveston. The CNP delegation, shown during its turn as torch bearer, consisted of, from left, Olga Boney, executive secretary; Megan Capetillo (daughter of Debbie Mellen); Gwen Wagner, Economic Development consultant; Debbie Mellen, service area assistant; Teresa Ramirez, service area assistant; Vernon Shotwell, service consultant; Scott Owens, associate service consultant; and Keith Gray, Galveston service area director.
