The Appalachian Construction Crew would like to thank all the bowlers and people that donated to the bowlers. We had a great turn out.

A record amount was raised this year. $5,185.20 This money will go to building the home for Jason and Lisa Kates family of Stearns, KY and their three children, Caleb, Jaylee and Joshua. The Kates Family is currently living in a trailer with many problems including a leaking roof and poor electrical and heating systems. Jason works in the lumber King Truss Department and Lisa is a cook for the Public Schools of Whitley City, KY. The Kates Family finds time to do a lot of service work for their community and their church. These donations will help the Crew build our 35th home.

of Personnel Management, which must be received by 25 May 15. (2) Forgetting the CFC, since initial donations

maintaining a CFC required voice mailbox. Vice-President Marcel Moreau volunteered to draft a letter to be sent

G. 2017 Deployment (work starts on Thurs, 1 Jun 17): After sending copies of 2017 proposed plans for using 32-ft
roof trusses to cover the front porch to the Crew Leaders, Framing/Roofing Crew Leader Bob Corsi objected to the front
porch side eaves as being too much work and Siding Crew Leader thought the revised roof scheme would add a lot more
work. The Construction Director did not originally propose this revised roof scheme but thought the porch side eaves
were necessary for some rain protection for the front porch and to make a less complicated intersection of the wall and
upper roof for the vinyl siding. Without the porch side eaves, a metal break would be required to make metal flashing at
the wall-siding intersection. Harry Wallace, the Good Shepherd Mission P.O.C. and Bob Corsi then proposed using all
32-ft roof trusses with 52-ft long front porch. The Construction Director rejected this idea as being too costly and would
add much more work for the Support and Siding Crews. The Construction Director will now revise the 2017 drawings
and material list back to the front porch gable roof used in recent past years.
7. New Business: None.

The Good Shepard Chapel has selected the Scotty and Tabetha Corder Family of Sterns Kentucky as our  Family. The family has two sons, Harley, 17 and Dustin,4. Scotty works only part time as a janitor at the Outdoor Venture Corporation (tent factory) due to a neck injury from a care accident. Three members of the Good Shepard Chapel Parrish Council sent a letter endorsing the Corder Family.

Update: the Family was living in a 24 year old trailer. Scotty and Tabitha adopt and foster children. The existing trailer was moved from the site and the family moved to an apartment as the site was readied for construction. The ACC descended on the site Friday 5 June 15.  27 members worked hard to make this site a wonderful home for the Corder family. Most of the crew left St Joseph’s Inn on 10 June 15. The finishing crew stayed for another week to finish the interior. See the photo’s posted to see the progress that was made along the way. The Family moved in on 19 June 15. Congratulations to the Corder Family on their new home. 208
