Lago Mar and Chesmar Host Vendors and Trades

Terry SwensonBenefit Homes Project

The Land Tejas Lago Mar Amenity Clubhouse was the venue that hosted dozens of vendors, suppliers and trades who donated to Chesmar’s Benefit Home. Land Tejas donated the homesite in Lago Mar.

Patrick Mayhan, chairman of the Benefit Homes Project, introduced Chesmar City President Scott Merovitch to lead the presentation of appreciation plaques to the guests. Scott also introduced Tim Johnson, director of community sales and marketing for Land Tejas, who also thanked the Benefit Homes vendors and the Chesmar team.

Guest speakers included, Keith Luechtefeld, president of GHBA; Carole Brady, executive director of HomeAid; and Lee Kirgan with Operation Finally Home (OFH). Lee invited two recipients of an OFH home to share a few words. They were USMC Cpl. Jonathan Dowdell and USMC Staff Sergeant Shawn Friesen.


Guests were treated to a barbecue buffet that was sponsored for the 15th year by Allpoints Surveying, with Jeff Solomon and Kendall McDermott overseeing the lunch.

“Chesmar Homes has enjoyed participating as builder captain for the GHBA Benefit Homes charity fundraiser every one of our seven years. It’s such a tremendous opportunity to be able to provide funding to two outstanding organizations like HomeAid Houston and Operation Finally Home, through the construction and sale of this new Chesmar home. We are extremely grateful to all of our vendors, suppliers, and trade base that generously gave financially towards this project.”

Scott Merovitch, Chesmar Houston President
