This past week progress has continued on the current Habitat for Humanity house in Middlesex. Paul and Matthew Sherwood of Contemporary Kitchens Ltd. of Campbell Drive in Topping made generous donations of kitchen cabinets, counter tops and sinks that are being installed.
Painting was done by Mike and Dana Longest along with new home owners Tammy and Kenny Lewis-Burrell and Roedell. Other volunteer work on the trim is being done by George Coussoulos, while light fixtures and electric work have continued with Ed Fisher and Jim Barker. At the same time, Randy Crittenden, Ivan Hertzler, Bob Todd, Becky Melton and Lyle Predmore have been installing the flooring. Walter Lewis used his tractor to landscape around the house and septic tank.
Offerings from the joint Vacation Bible School of three Deltaville area churches—Clarksbury Methodist, Zoar Baptist and Philippi Christian—were shared with Hands Across Middlesex and Habitat for Humanity.
We continue to be thankful for these many and various gifts of money, material, products and labor that are coming together to provide one more affordable house in the Habitat tradition for our community.
