On December 8, 2012, Avery County Habitat for Humanity completed and dedicated the new home of Derek and Sara Price. Friends and family surrounded Derek and Sara, along with their four children, to celebrate the occasion, which took place on the wrap-around porch of their new home in Altamont. Jesse Smith of Crossnore, NC filled the autumn air with his cool voice and rhythmic guitar playing. Family members tested the new kitchen by preparing delicious breads, dips, and other baked goods. Zane, the Price’s youngest son, added his touch to the occasion by running in and out of his new bedroom. Local community members presented the Prices with a Bible, a hand-made quilt (courtesy of Banner Elk Presbyterian Comfort Makers), a one-year YMCA membership (thanks to Williams YMCA of Avery County), and a decorative name plaque (given by The Sign Shop of Banner Elk). In addition to the tangible gifts, dedication attendees shared their excitement and love for the Prices.
