Bluegreen Communities® (NYSE:BXG), a developer of premier master-planned communities, is pleased to announce its participation in Operation FINALLY HOME. The organization, founded by Houston’s Bay Area Builders Association and sponsored by the NAPE Expo, the world’s largest oil and gas exposition, honors wounded and disabled veterans and widows of fallen soldiers with new homes.

Bluegreen Communities is working with the NAPE Expo and Operation FINALLY HOME to honor five families with land and custom-built homes at The Bridges at Preston Crossings, a beautiful, master-planned community in Gunter, Texas. The Bridges is centrally located along the North Dallas Growth Corridor, between U.S. Highway 75 and Preston Road. The community is built on the famous Double M Ranch and features a Fred Couples Signature Golf Course, first-class equestrian center and a 24-acre fishing and canoeing lake, among other amenities. Each family will receive an estate lot and a new home designed by RDGS Architects and built by Classic Custom Homes.

The first two families to be honored include war heroes Sergeant First Class Alan Hornaday and his wife, Sheila, of Fordyce, Arkansas, as well as Sergeant Levi Wilson, Jr. and his wife, Katie, of Fort Worth, Texas. Sergeant First Class Hornaday is a veteran of the U.S. Army who sustained injuries in Baghdad in 2004 and Sergeant Wilson is a U.S. Army veteran who was also injured in Iraq in early 2008. Both families will receive a land lot and custom-built home in The Bridges, with construction beginning in September 2010. Bluegreen Communities will continue this initiative in Spring 2011 when three more veterans and their families will also be honored with lots and new homes at The Bridges.

“It is an honor for Bluegreen Communities to support the members of our military who have sacrificed so much to protect our country,” said Dan Koscher, president and CEO of Bluegreen Communities. “We are proud to be a part of Operation FINALLY HOME and are excited for these deserving families to call The Bridges home.”
