Rockport hosts free recovery fair in wake of Harvey

Posted: Updated:

It was a day of healing for Harvey victims in Rockport and Fulton. The town hosted a free recovery fair to help hurricane victims cope with the storm's devastation and aftermath.

The Aransas County Long Term Recovery Team and the Rockport-Fulton Chamber Foundation teamed up for a full day of healing at the festival grounds at the Rockport Harbor. 

The fair hosted a guest speaker who gave an inspirational message to Rockport residents. There was also a Q&A session about recovery in the area. 

Food and drinks were also served.

Overall, it was a day that Rockport residents could come out and support one another 10 weeks after the hurricane. 

Blake Anthony, an Aransas Pass resident, was at the fair today and considered it a motivation for residents like himself. He acknowledged that it will be a long road to recovery, but the support from one another is still there.

"This is an effort to remind people to hang in there," Anthony said. "We will get it back. It takes a long time, and we need to encourage each other. But that's what today is all about."

The fair began at 11:30 a.m. and ended at 7:30 in the evening.? It wrapped up with a candlelight ceremony, a prayer and a healing message.
