This is the church building in Tolleson where the Tolleson Ward met. I attended there for close to 10 years.
Until June 29, 2012, when an arsonist set fire to our building.
On Saturday March 16, 2013 after 9 months of waiting, we were able to attend the groundbreaking for the new building.
In attendance was the Stake Presidency, the Bishops of the 3 wards that met there, city officials, the fire department and ward and stake members.
There were some short speeches, I don't remember the speakers names, with the exception of President Waldron. (And I apologize for the sound, it isn't great).
The 1st shovels of dirt was turned by the 3 Bishops, The stake RS President, the City official, the Stake Presidency and Clayre Jones, who is the widow of the 1st Stake President.
 Once the official groundbreaking was finished it was opened up for Stake Members and especially the children to have a turn.
Construction is due to start April 8, the building will be finished by April 8, 2014.
