It is with a great deal of pride and pleasure that I announce that under the leadership of Construction Committee Chair Grady Hopper and Construction Supervisor Mark Hinton our affiliate has passed the CO inspection again on the very first attempt.
This milestone is a clear indication that the building of HFHPC homes is in very good hands. Not only the leadership, but the multitude of volunteers the community and the participation of the home buyers and their families.
Congratulations to all. Closing is expected in mid-July. Please watch for details on the home dedication.
Steve Greenwell, President

Something wonderful happened yesterday. A trio of local Eagle Scouts, one of whom was working on a particular badge, approached their "Scout Board" about making an "A-Frame" swing for one of our New Hope Acres residents: Randy and Jessica Casey. The scouts really wanted to make the swing for the Casey's new home. Their Board said no. That for the badge in question, the swing would have to benefit more than a small family. So instead, the boys made the swing for the Methodist Church in Jasper. The first swing that is. These three young men decided that they would make the swing for the church, but they would ALSO make a swing for the Caseys. So they did.
