2013 Repair Affair

May 13th, 2013

Milestone Realty Consultants Realtors and staff joined together last week to help with the 2013 Repair Affair, sponsored by the Realtor-Community Housing Foundation and the Remodelers Council. The event was held Thursday and Friday, May 9th and 10th.  Workers spent two days helping Ms. Helen Offutt, a widow in the Lexington community. Her home was in need of landscaping, painting, and general home repair.

Our volunteers started working at 8:00am Thursday morning. They began by tearing down large bushes of honeysuckle and poison ivy that had grown on the side of the home.

Thankfully, because of the threat of rain on Friday, we were able to  make great progress on the first day!

Everyone did such a wonderful job! We were able to join together to get all the work completed in a day and a half–right before the rain started!
