Lexington Irmo Lake Murray Real Estate Update 12-17-2010

 

Good Samaritans help family in need – This is a simple Christmas story that shows what good people can do. The Samaritans are: Glenn Gainey and his wife Jean, members of Lexington Baptist Church and Charles Lucas and his wife Kelly, members of Saxe Gotha Presbyterian Church. The Gaineys met 88 year old Jack Snelgrove and his wife Damiata at church. They found out that the Snelgroves had no insulation in the ceiling of their home on Priceville Road near Gilbert. “Their heat just goes through the roof,” he said. When this week’s cold snap hit Lexington County, Glenn Gainey made inquiries. He talked with Charles Lucas, who operates a home insulation company. Lucas estimates the cost of insulating the Snelgroves’ 1900 sq. ft. home at $900 to $1,000. Gainey made calls to raise money. Lucas had two insulation jobs in Gilbert and checked out the house. While he was there, he decided to go ahead and do it without charge. This week, the Gaineys and the Lucases, with their children, Savannah 10, Colton 3, gathered with the Snelgroves at their home. “This is the warmest we’ve been in a long time,”said Mrs. Snelgrove. “It’s a Christmas Blessing.”

Service for the troops – Andrea Waters presented a check for $700 to Daniel Hennigan, U.S. Army Retired for the SC USO Lounge at the Columbia Metropolitan Airport, on Friday, Dec. 10. With the support of Andrea’s employer, David May of Columbia’s Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, Tony Tam of the downtown Hilton and ZUMBA dance instructor Stacey Ashley, she was able to collect money to send care packages overseas to our trops and donate $700 to the USO, Hennigan said. All five said they hope to work to “ZUMBA for our military troops” to raise more money in 2011. If you would like to support the SC USO or become a volunteer, please visit www.uso.com or call 822-7952 or 404-1824. The airport is also giving one day of free parking to our military through January 2.

Operation Kyle has opened a lot of eyes – Lance Cpl. Kyle Carpenter is a young Lexington County Marine who was seriously wounded last month in Afghanistan. He has undergone multiple surgeries since arriving at Bethesda Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. He will have many more surgeries before he returns home. His parents, Jim and Robin Carpenter, remain at his bedside; and his twin brothers Price and Peyton are staying with family here in Lexington. The Operation Kyle Facebook page, established by the “V” Sunday School Class at Lexington Baptist Church has 21,226 daily visitors. The Operation Kyle fund at Lexington Baptist Church continues to receive gifts to offset family expenses. Scott Vaughn leader of the “V” Sunday School class told the Chronicle “coming alongside a family with a real connection to Afghanistan has opened a lot of eyes and hearts. Afghanistan is a real place, and our Armed Services are in real danger – not just in Afghanistan but throughout the world. We’ve learned that “supporting our troops” is not just a patriotic cliché, it is a real and genuine call to action.” Vaughn said “Our journey alongside the Carpenters, will be a long one, and we’ve got to pace ourselves for the journey. We can’t afford to burn out on the front end of the journey.” The concern is not just local, Vaughn said, “We’ve also learned that the family of God is larger than our local church, denomination, or even community of churches. Those who follow Jesus are bound together across geography and demography.” “We get so busy in our daily lives that we begin seeing our world as our home, street and daily routine,” he said. “This project has reminded us that we as believers are called to have a greater vision of the world. We’ve certainly learned about the power of prayer.”

Deputies donate for the holidays – Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts and Lexington County Sheriff’s Dept. deputies donated 2,817 pounds of non-perishable food items and 1,655 toys during a Stuff-A-Bus public awareness event Friday. The event was conducted at the Wal-Mart Supe Center on Harbison Blvd. near Irmo. The Sheriff’s Dept. received the food and toys during the agency’s 14th annual Holiday Food and Toy Drive. The Salvation Army will distribute the toys to children who are in need of assistance, Metts said. Harvest Hope Food Bank will distribute the non-perishable food items to persons who are in need of assistance.
