Joe Cook of Saratoga Springs, NY, works on boards in preparation for Friday's house building at 131 Addison Rd. in Glastonbury Thursday. More than 60 volunteers, composed of veteran police officers, firefighters and construction trade union workers, will arrive Friday to frame, side and roof the home being built for Marine veteran and New Britain native Manny Jimenez at the sight of the former VFW Hall on Addison Rd., part of the Purple Heart Home project.
