All work is done with volunteer labor, much of which is provided by members of local churches. An emphasis is placed on ministering to the resident’s spiritual needs as well by showing the love of Christ in the volunteer repair and improvement efforts.

do something different,” Wilson said. The real challenge came from his pastor, who asked, “Have you thought about a local ministr y?” The idea struck home. “When he said that, I knew God was calling me to look at ministering here locally. With all of the problems that we have in this area with poverty, joblessness and broken families, clearly there was work that needed doing here,” Wilson said. As the catalyst for this incredible effort, Wilson has been able to rally dozens of churches, civicminded individuals and conscientious business owners to become part of this local ministry whether through donated materials, financial support or volunteer time. While receiving the award, Wilson was joined by family, friends and members of Rebuilding Hope Inc.’s Board of Directors and volunteers. SEE WILSON/PAGE 7

Christmas concert a sell-out

The Embers kicked off the holidays with the fifth local holiday concert “Christmas with The Embers.” The concert took place Dec. 2 at the Vance-Granville Community College Civic Center. More than 700 attended this year’s concert which included new costuming and a new mix of songs. Attendees young and old sang along and swayed to the holiday classics as “Santa” tossed goodies to the youngsters in the crowd. “The show offered some new and fresh entertainment this year. They continue to be a favorite in the local community,” said Chamber President Bill Edwards. The concert is coordinated annually by the Henderson-Vance County Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by Presenting Sponsor CenturyLink, Platinum Sponsors Progress Energy and P&G Pet Care; Gold Sponsors, Walmart Distribution Center No. 6091 and Maria Parham Medical Center; and Silver Sponsor, Satterwhite Point Marina.


“This is truly humbling,” Wilson said. 2012 Chamber of Commerce Chairman Catherine Hughes and Chamber President Bill Edwards presented the Henderson-Vance County Chamber of Commerce Annual Report and Program of Work. The reports highlighted the

previous year’s accomplishments and identified committee and overall goals for the upcoming year. In addition, Chamber President Bill Edwards was honored by current and past board chairs for his integrity-filled leadership and many accomplishments while leading the Chamber over the last eight years. “He has been a mentor for many and

is leaving the Chamber in a fiscally sound position,” said Paul Harris, a past Board Chair. “You will truly be missed.” Harris also presented Edwards with a plaque noting his dedication and commitment to the Henderson-Vance County Chamber from 2003 to 2012. Vance County Economic Development Commission Chairman Sam Watkins also addressed the assembly with thanks and

kudos for Edwards’ help during their recent time without an executive director. “He truly loves Vance County, has tireless energy, knows how to build relationships and has been more than willing to work to make this community a better place,” Watkins said. The organization also presented Edwards with a plaque. Edwards plans to vacate his role as president at the end of March.

“Focused on You.”
