Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity Community Service Project

August 27th, 2014|Comments Off on Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity Community Service Project

Friday, June 20, 2014 and Saturday June 21, 2014 the Annual El Paso County Bar Association Community Service Project for Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity took place at their 34-lot affordable housing development known as Country Living Estates located in Fountain, Colorado.

Our expert PPHfH construction supervisor was Gary Blake with his lovable dog, Prudence. Our construction volunteers included a strong hardworking team assembled by Erin Jensen plus two young hardworking students from Cheyenne Mountain High School in Colorado Springs. Everyone worked so well together with a single good purpose in mind. It was fun and invigorating doing this landscaping for PPHfH homeowner Renee and her Family!

Thank you to our awesome lunch providers who generously presented us and the afternoon shift of construction volunteers with a fabulous "most delicious in the universe" BBQ lunch, featuring slow smoked beef brisket, pulled pork, homemade corn bread, baked beans, apple crisp dessert and assorted beverages! We were told the meats were slow cooked in a huge smoker nicknamed "Jethro". The Hon. David Prince wrote:

Team Leaders,

Thank you for putting on a fabulous event for 2014. We had an excellent turnout with our four shifts and meal team. In total we had more than 50 people involved in serving our community and building community among bar members over the weekend. As you soothe your sore muscles, pat yourself on the back as well for such an excellent job.

Extra kudos to Jack and Doris Donley as well as Karen and Mike Hartley and Judge Gil Martinez for putting on a truly stellar meal this year. I think this was the best overall meal experience we've had yet. Thank you again for all your extra work.

We want to extend A Special "Thank You" to everyone who helped to arrange the Annual EPCBA Community Service Project! Please enjoy the photos and get involved next year!
