Ground broken for veterans build

| March 25, 2013

WEST LAFAYETTE – A grateful Ford family thanked Habitat for Humanity, the community of volunteers and God during the groundbreaking ceremony for Habitat Home number 13 in Coshocton County.

The ceremony was held March 24, at the site of the new home in West Lafayette. This Veteran’s Build had the Coshocton County Veteran’s Color Guard presenting the colors in a moving tribute to U. S. Army veteran and father, Grant Ford. His family includes, wife Kathy and children Keirstan, Dawson and Braiden.

Mom Kathy said, “It’s amazing. A very huge, huge blessing from God.”

Grant said, “This is absolutely unbelievable. I’m 100 percent humbled. I always believe in doing for others, especially with veterans. I was happy to help another veteran build a home and then they called me. I’m just entirely grateful for this opportunity and blessing and to all veteran’s past and present.”

About the Author ()

I live with my beautiful wife Nancy on a small farm just outside Coshocton. We have been married for thirty two years and have two grown children, Jessica and Jacob. Jessica is married to Aaron Mencer and they are employed with Coshocton City Schools. Jacob is a sophomore at Kent State University. I graduated from River View High School, have a Bachelor’s Degree from North Carolina Wesleyan University and am actively involved with the Roscoe United Methodist Church, serve on several local committees and am a member of the Coshocton Kiwanis Club, having served as Past-President. I love reading, especially military thrillers, the Civil War and history in general. My goal is to write a novel. My wife and I are also AdvoCare distributors and encourage anyone wanting to lose weight, gain energy and better health to explore AdvoCare at our website; www.fortunes4advocare.com. I love the media field, innovative technology and have worked in newspapers for over 30 years – in fact, my first job was delivering newspapers. The Beacon is a dream made possible by the support of this community and a great team. I hope to continue serving Coshocton County for many years.
