Message from Your Chairman 

Greetings all:
Our blessings are many.  Construction on the 268 Ethelind home is rapidly nearing completion.  Clay Electric Foundation gave us a generous grant of $8500 to use for purchase of tools and equipment.  Over the past many years, we have relied heavily on Larry Lee (our master-carpenter) who has provided us with expertise and guidance as well as tools and equipment.  Larry has been "all in" in his support of Habitat for Humanity to the extent "if he has it" we are welcome to use it.   
That is beyond generous.  We feel like family.  
The Clay Electric Grant will allow us to purchase much needed safety equipment of which scaffolding is high on the list.  We also want "two" of everything, so that when one crew is working on one side of the house, another is able to have the same equipment and do the same job on the other side of the house.  Also the day may come when we are building two houses at the same time.  Time will tell.  In any event "tools of the trade" are essential.
We appreciate all of the support for our organization.  We're know we are helping our community and we thank you for your continued support.    
Monty Stephens
