From Al Ellis via Miriam Hiser – "Let the construction begin! June 20, 2009 will be a glorious day in Dallas, Texas. On that date, which happens to be Fred’s birthday, we will begin construction of the Fred Baron Habitat for Humanity Memorial Home.
While I realize many of our supporters do not live in Dallas, we would like to invite each and every one of you to participate in the first day of contruction on June 20, 2009. The first contruction day involves framing the home and perhaps installing roof trusses. It is always one of the most exciting days for building a Habitat home in that we start with a vacant slab and end the day with a completely framed home…. I predict beautiful weather and a heartwarming experience as we celebrate Fred’s birthday by beggining the construction of a new home for a deserving Dallas family.“
