Maiden Rock area weaver helps Guatemalans in need
TOWN OF MAIDEN ROCK --- Guatemalan women have a friend in Mary Anne Wise.
The Maiden Rock area artist returned last July to the country where she'd honeymooned 10 years prior to find a people in tragedy. Their already meager economy was threatened, devastated by mudslides in the aftermath of hurricanes.
"I talked to one of the older men about what had happened," Wise said through tears Thursday, admitting he came to symbolize the residents' plight for her.
