Coming up -- On January 22 we will be hosting a "free will donation soup-er lunch" to benefit the "Renewing Homes of Greater Augusta". A soup lunch will be served, and we will have the director of the group, Phil Holbrook, as the speaker. This group volunteers time and materials to repair homes in the area for older or disabled folks who own their own homes, but are physically or financially unable to make necessary repairs. This volunteer group makes it possible for these folks to stay in their own homes as long as possible.
