Stories from Terry
LINCOLNTON – Almost 90 volunteers came out for the the first day of Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build Week on Saturday, May 6.
Volunteers – 84 women and three men – came together to work on houses for two families in the area. The future homeowners are Maria Salazar and her daughter and Meagan Sullivan-Pettis and her husband, Dominique Pettis.
Volunteers came from different organizations and businesses throughout the community. Brenda Mash, with People’s Bank, had participated in previous Women Build Weeks in Wilmington, but this was her first in Lincoln County.
DENVER – East Lincoln High School’s chapter of Habitat for Humanity will have its first home and garden show on Saturday, April 29.
It is also part of a project by East Lincoln senior Kat Vanderbilt, a member of Girl Scout Troop 20235, to help her earn her Girl Scout Gold Award. This is the chapter’s first year at the school, and Vanderbilt has worked as the group’s fundraising chair.
On March 25, 2017, our dearest Lincolnton ReStore manager, Mary Gibbs suddenly passed while visiting with family in Tennessee. Our hearts are broken as we mourn the loss of such an important person to Habitat and Lincoln County. Mary was an inspiration to us all and a wonderful example of what Christianity is all about.... L O V E! We all have shared many smiles, laughter, tears and memories with Mary and will cherish them until we meet again.
