Habitat for Humanity: A BIG Thank You to all the people who helped make our Build Day a success. We had 7 people who worked on the two townhouses – painting, landscaping, repairing railings. Three who worked on the lunch, and two who contributed a total of $500 to Habitat through Thrivent. That money was used to buy a door, paint, weather striping, wood, and more…some of which we used on Saturday. In one capacity or another, this group included Larry Rardin, John Condie, Kim & Mitch Hobby, Bev Dittmer, Larry Hjermstad, Pete Olson, Jacob Johnston, Lynn Mitzlafff, and Rap Fairley.

Frequently other volunteers join us on our build day. This time one of the Habitat Partners (those who have qualified to buy a Habitat home) needed to put in her sweat equity hours; so, she came out to help paint. She is a single parent, with two girls, who teaches in our school district. She has a second job, but still cannot afford to buy a house on the open market. Hopefully home ownership will be a dream come true for them – thanks to Habitat with a little help from CtK!
