Month: December 2016

A home for Christmas!

Kathy Jones closed on her renovated home on Broad St. just in time to begin decorating for Christmas. A day after she closed, festive decorations celebrating the season were already showing up on her front porch – confirmation that she loves her new home!

As a long time Children’s Ministry Director at First Presbyterian Church, and a teacher at Heritage Academy, Kathy has made such a difference in children’s lives over the years. In the same way, we know that she is going to be an asset to Harrisburg. She already volunteers to transport kids to the Boys and Girls Club in the neighborhood, and has communicated that she wants her home to be a safe haven for children.

Welcome Home Kathy! We are so glad to have you!!!
