New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - March 29, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas Wednesday, March 29.1995 ■ Herald-Zeitung ■ 7 AHabitat For Humanity starts its second home To many, Sunday March 26 was a dreary, rainy day . But not to Leesa Ryan’s family and friends and Comal County Habitat for Humanity. The lack of sunshine didn’t dampen the spirits of the group gathered at 1618 W. Bridge St. for the groundbreaking service of the second house that will be built by Comal County Habitat. To a curious passerby, it may have seemed strange to see a crowd standing in an empty lot with umbrellas poised to keep the drizzle off. But it wasn’t. Instead, it was old friends and new friends gathered around the Ryan family in a show of support for a dream of theirs that will be a reality in a few months. To them, it wasn’t an empty space with only stakes and ribbons for walls, but a home in which the New Braunfels family will live. Leesa Ryan, her son Christopher, and daughters Jessica and Jamie, will become the proud owners of the second CCHFH house. Comal County Habit for Humanity President Phil Rogers welcomed everyone and began the service by telling the crowd about CCHFH’s goals to not only finish the Ryan home in the next few months, but to place a third family in a home this year. He stressed the importance and the hope of involving at least 70 percent of the area churches. Officiating religious leaders were introduced one at a time, each taking a turn blessing every aspect of the project. Rev. Ray Bizer began with the invocation. Blessings were bestowed upon the ground by Pastor Oberstar. Rev. Walter Fleming blessed the builders and building. Pastor Mark McKinney blessed the new homeowners and Gus Bleitzer Sr., coordinator between CCHFH and Target, blessed the work for HFH. A collection was taken up to help defray CCHFH’s construction costs. The prayer dedication was given by Rev. Ray Bizer. After Pastor Mark McKinney ended with the benediction, Sebastian Alvarado, CCHFH con- Toon and the family that will move into the house, Leesa Ryan, son Christopher and daughters Jessica and Jamie. Habitat Site Supervisor Sebastian Alvarado, Bob Morrell and Bed West of the building committee and Tommy Toon of Target survey plans for the house. struction supervisor, and homeowner Leesa Ryan moved the first shovelful of dirt. Leesa’s children also got a chance to break the ground of their future home. Several of the CCHFH members and Lcesa’s friends came forward to participate in the digging to close the service. The family's excitement couldn’t be missed as Leesa repeated, “This is so awesome!" more than once. The children were all smiles as they stepped over the pink nbbon markers and Leesa jokingly told them “to get out of her living room.” Tommy Toon of Sun Builders attended as a Target representative. The Ryan house will be built by Habitat volunteers with the help and support of Target through the “Building a Wonderful Life” program. It is a joint venture formed between Target and Habitat International, where Target shows community support by helping to fund homes in as many towns as possible when they bring in a new store. Target not only provides funds, they also provide volunteers from among their employees and construction crew that is building their store. After the majority of the crowd left, CCHFH volunteers Sebastian Alvarado, Bob Morrell, Bert West, and Tommy Toon stood in the drizzle looking over the blueprints and finalizing plans to start construction. The projected date for completion is mid-July. Volunteers will be needed to start framing around May I. Both skilled and unskilled volunteers are needed. Anyone who would like to help is invited to call 625-7005. A Dean L Zincone, M.D. FAMILY PRACTICE 908 E.
