85-year-old Melvin and 76-year-old Jessie have been married for 56 years and have lived in Como since 1960. Five years ago, their health declined. Jessie had a stroke and now has very limited use of her left arm. Melvin has heart problems and now has a pacemaker. A couple of years ago, their foundation caused the roof to crack. With the little money they had, they were able to fix the foundation last year, but did not have the money to fix the roof. They now have a make-shift tin roof on the left side of their house, which leaks and has caused a lot of ceiling damage. Please vote for Jessie and Melvin so they can get the roof they so desperately need. “We are so excited. We’ve been waiting over three years for a new roof. We just cannot believe it’s finally happening. What a good day.” said Jessie Watts.
Lon Smith Roofing has scheduled the project for October 15th, 2014, weather permitting, with October 20th, 2014 as the rain delay date. In celebration Lon Smith Roofing is inviting the community to join them for an Installation Celebration to kick off the project. This will be a family friendly, festival style neighborhood event and all are welcome.
“We are very pleased with the success of this initiative that has brought so many members of our community together. We are excited to celebrate with everyone who made this possible,” said Scott Hamilton.
