   From Malcolm Davis ('65) of VA - 09/01/13 - "      Jamey (Douglas) Bacon ('66) Mission Project Update":

On August 31, 2013, the "bricking-in" of Jamey's driveway was completed. A little more sand remains to be brushed in for the final touch.

After beginning the construction on August 1, 2013, rain which occurred day in and day out for much of the month caused delays. (MURPHY'S LAW)

Yesterday, Jamey was able to experience her new and improved driveway addition.

She exclaimed, "This is beautiful, I love it, I wish that my mother were alive so that she could see this."

A neighbor informed the Daily Press of the project and Joe Fudge, the photographer for the newspaper came over and took pictures and a video. Apparently the paper will run a feature next week on the Mission Project. There may even be a reporter who will feature it on television, too. The "Press" apparently liked the story and the pictures that the photographer took back to the office.

Many thanks to the various workers from Parkview Baptist Church who assisted with this and other home improvements to Jamey's home during the Summer Youth Work Camp. Thanks to Ken Thompson and his assistant Robert of Four Seasons Home Improvement Company for their professional "expert" knowledge and installation. Thanks also to Kevin Coates of Grand Rental Station for the use of an EXCAVATOR and a DIAMOND CUT SAW BLADE.

Finally, I want to thank all of you who contributed. Contributions came from NNHS Alumni. Some were her classmates and other contributors were Alumni from other graduating classes who read the NNHS Newsletters that Carol Buckley Harty so faithfully publishes. Contributions also came from one who worked with me from Parkview Baptist Church throughout the construction period. Lastly, I received a second contribution from a NNHS Alumni doubling her initial contribution.

All of the contributions were spent. There were "behind the scenes" expenses too, of course, but every bill has been paid.

You are the reason that this project was possible. Your names will remain anonymous but your gift to Jamey will always be a reminder to her of your generosity and love.
  You are our HEROES.

You have done a mighty work by participating financially in this endeavor.

   Jamey is now "SAFE AT HOME."

Congratulations for a good deed well done!

      From Phil Hammond ('64) of FL - 09/01/13 - "Haiti Trip 8/30/13":


Bob O'Brien, Rick Giles and I visited Haiti to over see the construction and electrical issues for several projects funded by Haiti Outreach Ministries (HOM) last week. We all felt pretty good about our accomplishments. I have attached a few pictures for all to get a small idea of what it is like in a third world country.

Coming to America

Written and Performed by Neil Diamond

We’ve been traveling far
Without a home
But not without a star

Only want to be free
We huddle close
Hang on to a dream

On the boats and on the planes
They’re coming to America
Never looking back again
They’re coming to America

Home, don’t it seem so far away
Oh, we’re traveling light today
In the eye of the storm
In the eye of the storm

Home, to a new and a shiny place
Make our bed, and we’ll say grace
Freedom’s light burning warm
Freedom’s light burning warm

Everywhere around the world
They’re coming to America
Every time that flag’s unfurled
They’re coming to America

Got a dream to take them there
They’re coming to America
Got a dream they’ve come to share
They’re coming to America

They’re coming to America
They’re coming to America
They’re coming to America
They’re coming to America
Today, today, today, today, today

My country ’tis of thee
Sweet land of liberty
Of thee I sing
Of thee I sing
