Oktoberfest benefits Habitat chapter

Habitat for Humanity is ready to rock the Ridge in support of building affordable housing for families in Vernon

Habitat for Humanity is ready to rock the Ridge.

The Vernon chapter’s Oktoberfest gets underway at Predator Ridge Monday from 5:30 to 10:30 p.m.

The event includes dinner by Jeremy, head chef of the Ridge Restaurant at Predator Ridge, many live and silent auction items and live entertainment by Andrew Johns.

Habitat for Humanity provides affordable housing for Vernon and area families who qualify.

“We are presently starting a new triplex build on East Hill and are interviewing eligible families,” said Terry Clements with the chapter.

“Although our chapter is very young we will have, once the triplex is finished and inhabited, provided four local families with a brand new home which should be manageable budget wise. This means that they, like all home owners will be able to make gains in equity as they live in and enjoy their homes. Fittingly, I think, our motto is Building Homes – Building Hope.”

The successful applicant families will qualify for a no interest, no down payment mortgage, tailored, time wise, to their means. Successful families will be expected to contribute 500 hours of ‘sweat equity’ by helping construct their new home.
