100+ join in 47th Ground Breaking Celebration

More than 100 people surrounded Eric and Casandra Bridges Sunday afternoon, April 26, during the ground breaking for their new home, Habitat's 47th in Henderson. Members from six of the seven churches and two Henderson Lions Clubs committed to this special projected designated "The Apostles' Build" turned over shovels of dirt at the build site to celebrate the start of construction.
In addition to the Breakfast and Noon Lions Clubs and the Lions Club International Foundation, the house will be financed and built by volunteers from First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Trinity Lutheran Church, Community Baptist Church, St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Airline Baptist Church, Finley Baptist Church and Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church. Members from The Presbyterian Church and members and staff of the 09 Henderson County Football Team will also participate in the construction efforts.
