"Home Sweet Home"
Nehemiah Foundation "Shares Joy"
As They Conduct Open House at New Home
by: Bobby McDonald
It was a day of celebration for Barbara Cobb and the many, many people that helped her obtain the success of home ownership, through the Nehemiah Foundation, as an Open House was conducted on Tuesday morning, at the new home, located at 219 Ross Street. "This is a dream come true for me!" expressed Cobb, as she showed visitors through the new home. "I can't thank everyone enough and can't wait to begin moving in and making it my home!"
"The Nehemiah Foundation is proud to have another success story in our community and we want to thank the many, many agencies, individuals, and groups that have made this possible," expressed Valanderous Bell, a board member for the Nehemiah Foundation. "This is what it all about, communities working together to accomplish dreams, so that everyone can make a better Sulphur Springs and Hopkins County."
Bell then called on First Baptist Church Pastor, Mark Bryant, to offer the invocation. Bryant thanked those involved with making this dream a reality and challenged those present to make this a project that will "shed glory to God throughout the community, through sharing with others!"
Adam Teer, Chairman of the Nehemiah Foundation Board, gave brief remarks, as did Ann Gregg, Construction Contractor, and Craig Roberts, with Guaranty Bond Bank, who served as the financier.
Ms. Barbara Cobb will be moving into the home in the next few days, and plans are already underway for a home on the vacant lot, next door, as well as others in the City of Sulphur Springs!
Congratulations, Ms. Barbara Cobb!!!
