Four Years Later: Pinhook Residents Gather for Homecoming

Displaced Pinhook residents gathered once again this past Saturday to celebrate community, faith, and family. The festivities were marked by a fishing contest, games, singing, and home-cooked food. Residents continue to work towards the relocation and rebuilding of their town, but four years after the intentional breaching of the Birds Point Levee, governmental financial assistance still hasn’t been secured. Scroll down to see more stories and media about Pinhook, including a 26-minute documentary film made by the custodians of this site. This film will screen at the Sikeston Tributary Film Festival on July 10 and 11.
