Groundbreaking for Build 26 – April 9th

IMG_5034Thanks to Thrivent Financial, Heritage Builder’s and Flint Hills Area Builders Association (FABA) crew are working miracles today!! Ever tried keeping up with Ron Dechant???….Walls are up and  our new Habitat home in St. George, KS got off to a great (and fast) start!  Volunteers spent hours and hours installing decking, walls – and this week trusses – transforming an empty lot into the shell of a home. When the contractors took a break, MAHFH and Thrivent Builds had a quick but certainly heartfelt Groundbreaking Ceremony. MAHFH Executive Director Roxann Janes, MAHFH Board President Michael Ide, and and Thrivent Financial representative Blaine Cash had words of prayer and gratitude for this future happy Habitat home and all the volunteers that make this project possible in our area.
