Build 24 Groundbreaking

Build 24 has begun! The groundbreaking ceremony took place in Wamego on a cool Saturday morning in September. As part of the ceremony, Alliance Realty presented a check to Manhattan Area Habitat for Humanity in support of affordable housing. A big “thank you” to Alliance Realty for their continued support!
