Breckenridge Village of Tyler (BVT) will celebrate the grand opening of three new residences on its campus on May 17, 2019, offering a long-term home to additional adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities.
This phase of the BVT campus construction, which began in 2017, is the culmination of work from diligent BVT staff, support from generous donors, and help from countless volunteers – including contractors, builders, and suppliers – coming together to create something that will last for generations of residents to come. A notable and stable source of assistance throughout the building process was the Texas Baptist Men (TBM), led by Bill Pigott, who was a member of the TBM 22 years ago, when they built the first homes and the Robert M. Rogers Chapel in 1997. One of the new residences at BVT is named in Bill’s honor.
At the celebration guests will witness the official dedication of the homes, which includes a ribbon cutting at each residence, tours of the new homes, lunch for all in attendance, and a symbolic butterfly release.
Les O’Ferrell, BCFS Board of Trustees Chairman; Dr. David Dykes, Pastor of Green Acres Baptist Church; Steven Campbell and Linda Taylor, BVT leadership; and Tammy, a resident of BVT, will all take part in the grand opening.
