Wednesday, April 20, 2011 • Posted April 20, 2011

Mason County Habitat for Humanity will dedicate its ninth home in the community on Thursday, April 21st at 4:30 p.m. This latest house is located at 421 Bridge Street and the board of Habitat, as well as the newest homeowners, invite everyone in the community to attend. We are happy to announce that this is the ninth Mason Habitat home built in nine years and the second certified ‘Green’ house in Mason County! There will be a short home dedication ceremony followed by light refreshments and fellowship. Everyone will be free to tour the home on their own and meet the new Habitat home owners, Javier and Liza Garcia and their five children. This will also give you an opportunity to ask questions about the building of the house and about ‘Green’ components used in the build. Our building supervisor, Keith Kaan, will be on hand to answers questions. You will also have the opportunity to meet the Habitat RV Care-A-Vanners who were instrumental in constructing the house. These volunteers travel all over the country to assist Habitat for Humanity in building homes for low income families. If you are interested in becoming a Care-A-Vanner, please visit with them about their experiences or with our Care-A-Vanner coordinator, Dave Sharbo. Once again, we are forever grateful to the businesses and individuals who donate their time, goods, skills, labor and funds to the building of these homes. We are also proud of our partner family, Liza & Javier, for the many, many hours they have worked to build their own home. Even the children contributed their special talents!Lastly, we invite everyone to get your tickets now to attend our annual Habitat for Humanity Spring Benefit. The tickets are by donation of $50 each. We have a wonderful band scheduled for entertainment, an outstanding gourmet dinner with desserts planned, wine tastings, auctions, and a lot of fun!
