EXTREME MAKEOVER....CLARKSVILLE EDITION

The news today reported that Extreme Makeover Home Edition is once again building a home for a family in need in Clarksville, Tennessee!
That's only about 15 miles from where I live.
I'm so excited!

They did a build in Clarksville in 2005 for the family of an army medic that had been injured in Iraq.
It was fantastic!

This build will be done the week of October 17th. That also happens to be the week Chuck and I are on vacation! We had talked of possibly going to the Smokey Mountains for a few days, but I think I'd much rather volunteer to work on this build!

If any of you are in the Clarksville/Hopkinsville/Ft. Campbell area, you can go here and fill out a volunteer application to work on the project.
Not everyone will be accepted to work, but they do need about 2000 people.
Everything from builders, to painters, to people catering for the crew are going to be needed.
We ALL have something to offer!

I love this show. It always makes me cry, and also reinforces my beliefs that there are still good caring people in America!

Come on Kentucky and Tennessee..... let's show these people some Southern Hospitality!

What a wonderful heart of service and sacrifice that you are willing to forego a vacation in the mountains to help on this house. Such a neat project to contribute to!!! You know we are all going to have to hear all about it from a volunteer's prospective!!
