The 2018 Thomas Price Caldwell Jr. & Sr. Memorial Golf Tournament Benefitting Starkville Area Habitat for Humanity was held May 18 at Starkville Country Club. Twenty-four teams competed, over $36,000 was raised for Habitat, and a great time was had by all! Congratulations to our First Place Overall Team, Clark Beverages.
Many thanks to our Collegiate Challenge Volunteers from Rockford University in Rockford, IL, Oakton Community College in Des Plaines, IL, and Notre Dame Prep in Towson, MD! In three short weeks they progressed from a slab to a home with a roof, exterior siding, and interior drywall installed. We also owe much gratitude to the members of our community who provided food, fellowship, entertainment, and spiritual inspiration. It is amazing what volunteers can accomplish in such a short period of time!
The citizens of Owens Street had what will hopefully be the first of many neighborhood parties after the March 4 Collegiate Challenge groundbreaking. Homeowners, Habitat board members, volunteers and friends, and Collegiate Challenge volunteers from Rockford University enjoyed finger foods and fellowship to celebrate the completion of Owens Street and the beginning of another Collegiate Challenge.
The home dedication ceremony for the fall 2017 Maroon Edition Habitat House was held November 21. Many thanks to Mississippi State for their continued support of Habitat for Humanity. We are thankful for the support of MSU and the Starkville community to make this day possible. Congratulations to Kareema, Korrine, and Dorione on their new home!
