Thursday, June 25th, 2015 — Members of the Home Builders Association of Delaware (HBA/DE) competed with friends, family, and colleagues in one of the largest Spring Golf Tournaments in years. This year, the tournament was held at Wild Quail Country Club in Camden-Wyoming, Delaware.

With 21 Foursomes, and nearly 100 overall attendees, this makes the second golf outing in a row to exceed its previous years attendance. Prizes were ultimately awarded for longest drive, straightest drive, closest to the pin, and overall score. All in all, competition within HBA/DE Golf Tournaments is increasing.

This past week, the Associates Council of the Home Builders Association of Delaware (HBA/DE) came together for the 2015 Ramp Build. We learned from State Representative Carson of a very sick Air Force Veteran who had been confined to his home in Dover and was in need of a handicap ramp.

The design, supplies, and manpower were donated by the members, associates, and friends of HBA/DE. This process has spanned multiple months, from planning and preparation to construction. Several volunteers have spent the last couple of days assembling the ramp. As of today, June 26th, 2015, construction remains underway and is nearly complete except for a few finishing touches.
