Woman, 72, to help rebuild home destroyed by Katrina

She may be a 72-year-old grandmother of six, but Regina Miolene will soon head south to rebuild a home destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.

Miolene, of Stamford, is one of 17 Habitat for Humanity volunteers who will help rebuild the home. It will be her fifth trip to the South with the organization.

Miolene says she has no plans to give up volunteering any time soon. ?My husband laughs at me because he says I come home every Thursday hot and tired and he says ?How are you?? and I say ?I'm so happy? because I am. I've done a good thing and I've enjoyed doing it,? she says.

The volunteers each pay $100 plus the cost of lodging for the trip. They say they are looking forward to helping out.
