Ground Breaking Progress

Progress Update

Saturday November 12 marked our ceremonial ground-breaking at 88 Birch Ave.  In addition to our board members and work volunteers, we were joined by Father Tom Berardi of the Sacred Heart Catholic Church.  After our Board President and Family Partnership chairperson spoke, Father Berardi offered a blessing on the house and the family who will soon call it home.

John and Ethel were reluctant to mess up  the landscaping efforts of the Six Flags crew.
Warm fall weather helped us continue outside tasks including steps and railings for the back porch and steps for the front porch were completed.  Inside, drywall mud work continued to smooth the walls.  Painting and floor underlayment installation were also started.
