Habitat-built playhouse a ‘super’ gift for military family
(Zam! Pow! Bam!)
Playhouse 4
The Welsh brothers (from left), Zander, 8; Jack, 6; and Jace, 3 look out of the windows and doors of their new playhouse at their home near the Wateree River on Sept. 26. Home Depot employees volunteering with Habitat for Humanity built the playhouse as part of a blitz that morning in Greenville. Habitat volunteers then trucked the playhouse to Camden to deliver it to the Welshes that evening. - photo by Martin L. Cahn/C-I
Around 6:15 p.m. Sept. 26, with sunset not far off, a pickup truck pulling a medium-sized open trailer stopped in front of Jonathan and Kate Welsh’s house near the Larry Doby baseball fields in Camden. Two men got out of the pickup, inspected the load on the trailer and then waited for the right moment to reveal what they had on board.
