Click here for Holly, Winter and Hunter’s story. We hope that you’ll be involved in supporting their dream of a simple, decent place to call ‘home’, with building set to begin in 2016.
Appreciation for the Community’s Support -
Please give your patronage to these area businesses, acknowledging their support of our annual Swing for Habitat Golf Tournament Fundraiser. Another successful and FUN year! And mark your calendars for 2016…see you all on October 1st on the links!
Oh, and should you feel inspired, we’re also including the names of our volunteers (it’s a beautiful course to enjoy the fall foliage on) as well as the teams and individuals to beat next year!
Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter announced last week that recent liver surgery revealed that he had cancer which had spread to other parts of his body. This Thursday (8/20) he held a press conference in which he stated, “I have had a wonderful life,” and that, “It is in the hands of God, whom I worship.” That afternoon he began a course of radiation therapy for the melanoma.
For over 30 years, President Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, have been the most visible and hands-on supporters of our world-wide mission. He, Mrs. Carter, and their extended family and friends all are in our thoughts and prayers.
President Carter encouraged Habitat to continue with its plans for the Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project, still on track to take place in Nepal in November. Habitat will work with 100 families in the Ratnanager municipality in the Chitwan district near the city of Bharatpur (Nepal’s fifth-largest city, ~100 miles west of the capital, Kathmandu). Having been a part of the June 2003 Valdosta, Georgia, work project as an AmeriCorps member, I [Kelley] would encourage everyone to consider participating in one of these events now or in the future.
