Habitat For Humanity To Hold May 22 Meeting

MAYVILLE – The Mayville Mid-County Habitat for Humanity will hold a community information meeting at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 22, at the Carlson Center at Mayville’s Lakeside Park.

“The meeting will focus on building our third house,” according to Mike Ricketts, project coordinator. “We are preparing to build this home at 7 Patterson St. in the village of Mayville.”

The meeting will provide information regarding Habitat for Humanity, including the family selection process, community involvement, hospitality and construction, Ricketts said.

“Our hope is to recruit volunteers to work behind the scenes on the organizational committees as well as weekly construction volunteers,” Ricketts said.

All in the community are invited to learn more about building a home for a needy family. As for skills, the ability to help with any task needed to build a house. Previous volunteers can teach new volunteers what they need to know. Anyone in the Mayville area who knows a family in need of a house also may pick up family applications at the meeting.

“Come see how you and members of your church or community group can become involved in Habitat for Humanity,” Ricketts said, adding, “Through the work of Habitat, thousands of low-income families have found new hope in housing.”

All those in attendance also will enjoy the pizza and beverages that will be available. For more information, call Ricketts at 753-7831.
