Extreme Makeover Home Edition holds volunteer pep rally

 

extrememakeoverhomeeditionHow do you build a dream? For ABC’s Extreme Makeover Home Edition you do it one family at a time. You take community craftsmen, area businesses, and every day people like you and me. You mix them all together, and 106 hours later something wonderful comes out. In this case it’s a new home for a deserving family; a renewed sense for people in the community, that yes we can make a difference; and for the people who worked on making it all come true, a sense of accomplishing something special.

On Oct. 17th, a Clarksville area families home will be demolished, rebuilt, furnished and decorated in under 106 hours. The work will be done using local volunteers under the direction of builders Bert Singletary and Don Duncan. It is anticipated that more than 2,000 volunteers from the Montgomery County area will participate in the exciting one-week project.Volunteer sign ups are still being accepted at the build website – www.extremevolunteer.com.  Volunteer guideline information is available on the website.

Duncan & Duncan and Singletary Construction invite volunteers to an Extreme Makeover pep rally

 

emhecontractorsVolunteers for the local Extreme Makeover: Home Edition build are invited to a pep rally to be held at 8:00am on Friday, October 9th, at the First Baptist Church Laida Fellowship Hall in downtown Clarksville.

Don Duncan of Duncan & Duncan Construction and Bert Singletary of Singletary Construction, the selected partners for the build, invite volunteers to join in the pep rally.

The building project is an opportunity to give back to the community, Duncan and Singletary agree. “This community has given much to me in times when I needed it the most.” Duncan said. “It is time for me to give back what little I can.” Duncan said that many people helped his family in the long years of recovery after his seven-year-old son, Warren, had a stroke. Warren is now 24 and involved in the construction business.

Singletary said this is a special opportunity to change a life for a family that is different from building a house for sale. “I’ve been blessed with skill and ability and now I can use that to change someone’s life,” he said.

Conrad Rickettes, executive producer of the popular Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, will be present for the pep rally to personally thank volunteers for their willingness to participate in this life-changing event for a family in this area that will be selected on October 17 for the build. «Read the rest of this article»
