Volunteers brave rain to build house
Placeholder Image
Rain didn’t dampen the spirits of 40 volunteers Saturday as they joined together in building a house for Habitat for Humanity – a house that will be a home for Lisa M. Thaxton Taylor and her two daughters.“It will be our first home,” Taylor said after helping raise a wall on her new house on Fair Street as the rain poured Saturday morning. “This has been a lifetime dream, to have a place for me and my children. I want to thank the Lord for being so good to us and for everyone who is helping make our dreams come true.”Taylor is a cancer survivor and has worked for 10 years at Stewart’s Pharmacy.
