A couple of weeks ago, I began to call leaders of our covenant partners around the United States and just kind of check in to see what's going on here and there. This week, I've been in touch with Neil Folks in Craig, Colo., and Anne Catherine Murray in Augusta, Ga.
Anne leads FCH Augusta-Harrisburg. Although I was disappointed this Anne Murray didn't sing "Shadows in the Moonlight," I quickly became a fan of this Anne Murray, too. She also works full-time for Flywheel
, a company established in Augusta "with the belief that historic structures, with imagination and care, could be repurposed and given a new lease on life." I suggest you visit their website
and browse the innovative company's work.
With Anne at the helm, Augusta-Harrisburg FCH is naturally innovative and very open to new ways of doing things. Their focus right now is on the Harrisburg neighborhood, an old mill village.
The group has almost completed its first house in the Harrisburg area, one that is fortunately just across from a brand new Kroc Center
that will be a hub of community support groups.
