The Little Engine That Could
As TEEG celebrates our 25th year of serving the community, we do so in a state of euphoria. We have never experienced a time in our history where we have been so happy… and so humbled. We are forever grateful to the community for coming together to give TEEG a new home. Our new facility on Thatcher Road in North Grosvenordale was built for the community, by the community, to serve the community evermore.
The story of how the TEEG building was built is not unlike many from childhood… rich with lessons. Our young faith community members learned lessons in public service. Leaders who moved the project forward learned lessons in patience. Ellis Tech students learned vocational skills in electrical construction, commercial plumbing, patio design and concrete installation. Legislators and local officials learned lessons in community resourcefulness.
The greatest lesson learned is how important it is to give people an opportunity to be a part of something. In this ever more structured world of contracts, policies and risk management, it has become difficult for people to contribute to and participate in public projects. The TEEG building process bucked this trend and invited the community to be part of something meaningful. Everyone who answered the call to donate their time, talents and treasures were repaid not with money but rather a sense of ownership and community pride.
