Message from Your Chairman 

Greetings all:
We finished our home at 268 Ethelind Drive.  It looks beautiful.   A special thanks is extended to PUBLIX for funding this home.  Without PUBLIX, we would have struggled.  We had issues, the biggest being the well problem.  But with leadership from several Board members, we overcame that hurdle and the house has good water in the home.
A special thanks is extended to:  Don Reed Roofing, Florida Pest Control,  Bryan Zecher, Menendez Construction, Glenn I Jones A/C, Dale Peeler, Lake City Drywall, John Milton Cabinets, Jimmie Williams/ Columbia High School Building Class, A Proud Plumber, Win Supply, A&B Septic, Earth Scapes, and Craig Croft.   
Additionally, we thank Troy of the Columbia County Building Department and his staff for their guidance and prompt inspections when requested.  
A lot of people worked on this project.  But several were there day-in-day out.  They include:  Larry Lee, TD Jenkins, Brendon Jenkins, Willie Harris, Leonard Boice, and George Burnham.  Paul LeClair, Pat Elwood, Vic Lantroop, A&B Well, Halls Well, and the Staff of Publix also helped significantly.
There were "lessons learned" with this home.  At the time some of the issues seemed very challenging.  We got through them all with GOD's blessings and we "learned our lesson.".  
We're now planning for the next house... join us. 
Monty Stephens
