YOU helped build it!

The MAAR/MBA Habitat House was dedicated this past Saturday, October 25th.  We had a group of volunteers out that morning to lay sod, help landscape and tidy up inside before the ceremony.  Although six houses were dedicated that afternoon, we were fortunate enough to have our house as the backdrop for the entire ceremony.  Harold Blockman, Jon Albright, Jules Wade, Katie Shotts and Charlie Land from the MBA attended. 

As Jon Albright handed the homeowner the keys to her new house, he said, “We hope this is the beginning of a new day for you and that it makes a difference. We wish you many years of happiness.”

 

As you know, it takes a lot of busy hands and warm hearts to build a house in eight weeks.  We could not have completed the house on time and had everything run so smoothly without a large number of volunteers.  In total we had about 100 volunteers who worked at least one of nine different build days.  A sincere thank you to all our volunteers for supporting the build and promoting it to their friends, offices and chapters. 

 

The efforts most definitely paid off!  It was very heartwarming to see it all come to fruition.  John Snyder said, “Just as we are helping to strengthen the Memphis community with projects of this nature, I firmly believe this is helping to strengthen all facets of our real estate community as well.”  

Be sure to look for the special pull-out section in the Commercial Appeal in November celebrating Habitat’s 25th Anniversary, as it will have more coverage of the MAAR/MBA house.
