Under the leadership of Mr. Downey Starkville Habitat established the ReStore thrift store located at 206 Jackson St. Mr. Downey did the planning and preliminary work to start a subdivision, Kelley Estates, which will have space for 30 houses. Mr. Downey was a pioneer in building community relations and is an essential to the success of Starkville Habitat for Humanity today. Thank you so much for all your service!

Ms. Robertson gave a heartfelt thanks to all the attendants. We are truly excited for Ms. Robertson starting this next phase of life and we thank all of you that continue to support our mission.
