Colee Court!

Chip Colee, Music Minister at FBC Mtg., was born on leap year and technically has only had 11 birthdays!!! His family wants to make sure that every leap year birthday is something special.
This year, Christy (Chip's wife) wanted to link Chip's Birthday to Children's Hope. Since Chip is a big sports fan, she decided to ask choir members to give towards a basketball court and goal for the kids at Children's Hope in Jacmel, Haiti. And give they did! Chip was presented with this gift at choir last night along with a piece of marble (left over from the construction of FBC sanctuary)
with this inscription: Colee Court, FBC Sanctuary Choir, Montgomery 2012. Chip is all about missions, so this was a great gift for him. The piece of marble will be incorporated into the basketball court. On behalf of Children's Hope, thank you Christy, Donna Haney and all of the choir members! Plans are being made to pour a concrete court and install a basketball goal on Children's Hope land in Jacmel for the kids to enjoy for many years to come. That basketball court will see a lot of action in the years to come!
