Joseph will compile his findings on the home and have handouts available during the Parade of Homes (May 7 – 22) that will explain the many green features of this home. We’ll also have a special tour of this home during Green Day at the Parade on Tuesday, May 17. We hope to see you there!

MemberNews Tom Bagnal Sr. Thomas Nettles Bagnal Sr., retired homebuilder, husband of Elise Carson “Sissy” Bagnal, passed away at his home on February 22, 2011. Born January 17, 1926, in Columbia, he was the son of Mallard and Jessie Bagnal. He is survived by his wife of over 61 years, “Sissy”; his children, Elise Bagnal Flowers and her husband, Charlie, Diane BagnalMoody and her husband, Bob, Thomas N. “Tommy” Bagnal Jr. and his wife, Elizabeth; his grandchildren, Carson Flowers Tate and her husband, Andrew, Charles Bays Flowers and his wife, Cathy, Wallis Gandy LeMasurier and her husband, Nick, Marion Moore Gandy III and his wife, Lauren, Thomas “Tripp” N.

Tom was a graduate of Columbia High School and he attended The Citadel. He served on active duty in Europe during World War II in the United States Army and had retired from the Army Reserves as a Major. Tom organized a group of local builders and, in 1958, they chartered Home Builders Association (HBA) of Greater Columbia. He served as the first president for two terms and was involved in local, state and national levels of the HBA. He was a Senior Life Director of the National Association of Home Builders. Tom’s contributions had long been recognized by his peers, having been named Builder of the Year in 1966 and honored with the Gordon A. Harrison Award in 1980. In 1989 he received a REGAL Award from the HBAGC Sales & Marketing Council and The State newspaper for outstanding community service. Tom made tremendous contributions to the community and the state including 12 years on the Richland County Planning Commission. He was recognized as a successful businessman as a home builder, developer and owner of Bagnal Builders Supply Company. He served as president of the Greater Columbia Chamber of Commerce and was named Ambassador of the Year in 1989. Tom served as chairman of the Board of Directors for the Richland Regional Medical Center Foundation and was a member of the cabinet board for the United Way of the Midlands and past chairman of the boards for the Carolina Children’s Home and Richland 14

Thomas Bagnal Builder of the year award In a unanimous vote, the HBASC Board of Directors decided to rename the Builder of the Year Award to the Thomas Bagnal Builder of the Year Award in honor of the HBASC’s first president Tom Bagnal, who passed away last month. Not only was Bagnal the first HBASC president, but he was the first to serve two consecutive terms. During the Bird Supper, HBASC President Mike Lowman addressed the Bagnal family and friends, who were in attendance. “Each of you know first hand how much of an influence he was in your life. Our industry and Association were built on Tom’s leadership and we would like to say thank you.” The Thomas Bagnal Builder of the Year Award will be presented to a deserving builder member during the Celebration of Excellence on Thursday, July 14 at the Myrtle Beach Marriot Resort & Spa at Grande Dunes. Tickets are on sale now. When you and your spouse/guest register for the convention, each of you receive a complimentary ticket.

Builders Day at the Capital On March 15, HBA Members met at the Hilton Columbia Center for breakfast and a Legislative Briefing sponsored by Holiday Builders and Palmetto Exterminating. Armed with this knowledge, they headed over to the State House to meet with elected officials from the greater Columbia area and bring up issues of importance to our industry. While they were there, they invited the officials to the HBASC Bird Supper to be held in Columbia on March 30th. (See next issue for recap of the Bird Supper.)
