MONTH IN REVIEW: December 2014
By Chris Johnson,
Director of Communications
The holidays have been great this year, and the Christmas spirit is alive and well in the hearts of Fuller Center supporters and volunteers. Now, we are ready to charge ahead into the year 2015, which will be The Fuller Center’s 10th anniversary (hence the 10th Anniversary logo pictured at right). But while we’re focused on the future, here’s a quick look back at some of the news in December.
- Here’s a report from WLKY-TV about yet another once-vacant house in Louisville that is now a like-new home for a military veteran and family.
- There’s still time to vote in our Story of the Year poll! Click here!
- Macon hosted a group of fraternity brothers from the University of Cincinnati to do work that a homeowner calls "a Christmas miracle." Check out the report from WMGT-TV here.
