Habitat For Humanity
The Habitat pancake breakfast last week raised $705, and a very pleasant time was had by all attendees. Thanks again to all those who donated food and helped out with the preparations and hosting. We were greatly pleased to have our new Habitat family in attendance. The cinematographer from Ice River Films started filming the video being produced for the MNO.
Our next Habitat community event will be a barbeque on Sunday, June 26 from 12 noon to 2:30 p.m. at Sterling Mennonite Fellowship. There will be special activities for the children.
The start of our Habitat basement build is July 5, only 30 days from today! Faith Lutheran is supplying all of the volunteer labor and coffee breaks for the basement build on Ross Ave., and the churches affiliated with the Inter Faith Habitat project are supplying 76% of the volunteer labor for the main build on St. Mary’s Rd.

If you wish to take this coming year off, please let Linda Wilton or Doug Breckman know. If you did not volunteer last year & wish to join our team, please let us know that also.
For first time volunteers (& seasoned veterans), we will be holding training sessions for each of the positions in early September!
