Lee & Beulah Moor Children’s Home Multi-Purpose Athletic Facility Progresses
The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC), El Paso Chapter 248, is committed to building a multi‐purpose athletic facility for Lee & Beulah Moor Children’s Home. The project is coming along and the group hopes to have the main tennis court in place by Women in Construction Week, March 3-9, 2013.
This project will benefit the children who are living at the home temporarily. The Lee & Beulah Moor Children’s home is a wonderful place for children who are having a difficult time in their lives; some of their situations will bring tears to your eyes.
NAWIC Chapter 248 has embarked in a project for the children to have a wonderful athletic facility.
Anyone can stop at 1100 Cliff Drive, sign in at the front office and ask to see the project. The group has been working with Bill Tepsick, a tennis professional who teaches the young children how to play tennis. He is the NAWIC tennis consultant and volunteers his time and talent to the children and to the project.
NAWIC engineer, Ruben Ponce, has donated many hours designing this project and we are so very grateful to him. We are fortunate to have some wonderful NAWIC members who are contributing their time and resources to make this project possible.
Conni Fulk of NCT will be providing labor and equipment to demolish the existing dilapidated asphalt court.
Diana Gamboa of Apache Barricade & Sign will be providing for the disposal of debris.
