Category:We held a key conveyance ceremony today for the new homebuyers at 33 Sargeant Street, Tiana and Meschac Hercules. Mayor Pedro Segarra was on hand to congratulate the Herculeses, and Barbara Fields from HUD was also there to congratulate them. HUD provided support for this project through the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP), and the house is considered one of NSP's real success stories. Lynda Godkin, our board chair, and Rich Grobe, executive director of ServCorps, also spoke to the crowd. The house was packed! Attendees included Dean Amadon of AHNA and the Asylum Hill Congregational Church, Mike Marshall of Aetna, David Panagore from the City, Andrea Perreira of LISC, Donna Taglianetti of Co-opportunity (sponsor of YouthBuild Hartford), Yasha Escalera of the City's Housing Division, Ruth Grobe of ServCorps, State Representative (and neighbor of the Herculeses) Marie Kirkley-Bey, and Thea Montanez of The Hartford. As a special treat, Rich and Ruth presented the Herculeses with a quilt prepared by friends of ServCorps from the Asylum Hill Congregational Church. Along with the slide show of the event, we also preserved HUD's press release and the event program put together by the City of Hartford.
