Bluegreen Communities® (NYSE:BXG), a developer of premier master-planned communities, along with other business donors, will break ground on two new homes for wounded war heroes. The land and home donations are being made possible through Operation FINALLY HOME and its supporters, Bluegreen Communities, NAPE Expo, Classic Custom Homes, RDGS Architects and Acme Brick. Operation FINALLY HOME is an organization that honors wounded and disabled veterans and widows of fallen soldiers with new homes. Bluegreen Communities will provide a total of six lots throughout Texas to honor veterans and their families.

The groundbreaking ceremony will take place Saturday, September 25, 2010 at 10:00 a.m. at The Bridges at Preston Crossings, 17970 FM 121, Gunter, Texas 75058. The public is invited to honor the families and participate in a day of fun. Festivities include horseback riding, fishing and a bounce house. Also, guests will get a chance to see Acme Brick’s “Baby Clay,” the world’s largest brick certified by the Guinness World Records TM, weighing in at 9,300 pounds and measuring 116 inches long (9 ft., 8 in.).

CNN Hero of the Year Nominee, Dan Wallrath, Founder and President of Operation FINALLY HOME, and Daniel Vargas, Executive Director of Operation FINALLY HOME, will be recognized with a letter of commitment from Acme Brick President and CEO, Dennis Knautz, to provide bricks for the next 100 homes built by the organization.

The families receiving land and custom-built homes 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.
