A meeting will be held at RVCC on Monday, February 17, at 7:00 PM to continue to explore the formation of a Nelson County affiliate for Rebuilding Together. As you may know, an Amherst/Nelson affiliate had existed for more than twenty years. In time, the board became top heavy in persons who could get projects done and lacking in persons with administrative skills to keep the program going. Therefore, the Amherst/Nelson affiliate made the decision to disband in the latter part of 2013.
As a native of Nelson County and a member of the Nelson County Chamber of Commerce, it is my desire to establish a new Rebuilding Affiliate that will serve the residents of Nelson County. In order to make this venture successful, support is needed from the Chamber of Commerce and others in leadership in Nelson County.
I would like to invite you and other Chamber members to attend the meeting on February 17
. For those unfamiliar with Rebuilding Together, the organization is national and provides free home repairs for low income homeowners through local affiliates using volunteers to make repairs as well as on board committees. The national web site is:www.rebuildingtogether.org
