A ground breaking ceremony for the 2003 GMWP Hickman county HFH house was held yesterday (May 31) just north of Centerville. The ceremony was attended by Grand Master Roanld Coates, OES Worthy Grand Matron Sister Janet Hopson, OES Wothy Grand Patron Brother Norman Ballard (and board member and treasurer of Hickman HFH) and a large number of Grand Officers, (both Lodge and OES), brethren, family members guests and friends along with the partner family, the Carters.

Cutbacks in the Tennessee's State Budget have resulted in decreased THDA funding to HFH affiliates and donations are still needed. Hickman HFH is a non profit 503(c)(3) corporation and donations are generally tax deductible.

Any individual or Lodge or Masonic body desiring to make a donation, should make a check payable to HICKMAN COUNTY HFH.

Please mail checks to Brother Norman Ballard, Treasurer Hickman County HFH, P.O. Box 147, Centerville, TN 37033. Tax receipts and thank you letters will be issed by Hickman HFH.

Construction will begin within the next 4 to 8 weeks. Anyone wanting to volunteer as an operative builder should contact me (webmaster@gmwp.org) or site supervisor Brother Terry Pinkerton (Junior Deacon, Centerville Lodge #618) at 931 212 3045 or 931 729 0332 (evenings).

Thank you.

Tom Boduch
GMWP Director
