A very welcomed and relaxful respite from their diligent labors at 32 N. Julia Street, the AmeriCorps NCCC Fire 3 Team were the guests of Anthony and Ruth Hazelwood for a cookout and yard games recently. Invited to share in the good food and fun were also members of Habitat's staff and their spouses Steve and Debbie Hargis, Bob and Sally Hicks, Sarah Heath and Donna Phillips. Ken and Susie Middleton assisted the Hazelwood's with the hamburgers, hotdogs, all the trimmin's, brownies and chocolate-chip cookies!
The nine AmeriCorp young adults finished their second full week in Henderson, having raised the walls, set the roof trusses and started decking the roof on the Habitat for Humanity house underway in partnership with Laura Green and her family. They are committed to staying through the end of October and hope to have much of the work on the house completed by the time they leave.
Families, civic clubs, churches and business are welcome to host this hard-working team of young adults for lunch or dinner and may contact Steve Hargis at Habitat (869-9011) to schedule a meal.
Thanks to the Hazelwoods for being the first!
