Habitat project begins

The chapter’s family selection committee is presently hard at work reviewing applications from families

Vernon’s Habitat for Humanity project is moving ahead.

An earth mover recently demolished the old building at 24th Street and 35 Avenue so construction of the new Habitat for Humanity residence can officially begin.

“The East Hill location will soon see the erection of a brand new triplex which will be filled by three local families,” said Terry Clements, with the organization.

“The chapter’s family selection committee is presently hard at work reviewing applications from families hoping to qualify for ownership of one of the three new residences. In the near future short-listed families will be visited by members of the selection committee who will have the tough task of making the final decision on the future owners of the units.”
