According to Development officer Linda Kite Scott the Texarkana office has something very special happening this year.  They have received a grant to fix up an unoccupied house located behind their office. The grant money is being used for re-doing the plumbing, some furniture is being donated and the inside of the house will be repainted as well.

Everything should be done in time for the S'mores Open House and they will have a Grand Re-Opening of Our House that will then be used for a place for local troops to meet, and hold events like sleepovers and cookouts once again.
