HBADE Associates Council Honored by State Legislators
The Associates Council received a Tribute Proclamation Plaque last week during a ceremony in front of the Delaware House of Representatives.
The Council was applauded and recognized for this award in recognition of our 2015 Ramp project build for an ailing and seriously ill Air Force Veteran that had become immobile, it had become difficult for him to exit and enter his home in his wheelchair. Having heard of his dilemma from State Representative Bill Carson, our members teamed up to field measure Mr. Steele’s home; engage a Hodgson high school student to teach him to prepare a ramp building permit application; and build the ramp with members volunteering their time and donated all building materials.

On behalf of HBADE, a hearty thanks to all of our volunteers for helping us help our community!
