Virginia Groundbreaking

Posted: 0000-00-00 00:00:00

This morning the Mccarty Jalonen home, being built in partnership with the Virginia High School, broke ground in a ceremony attended by many community members. Many people who will be involved with the project shared a few words with those who were in attendance. Excitement and hope were definetly visible from every point of view-- from the President of the Habitat for Humanity board to the Virginia High School Principle to the students who will be working on rebuilding the house. The youngest member of the group who gathered today was Tricia's six year old son, Landin. It was his first time at his new home, and he already seemed comfortable as he played hide and seek in the living room closet.
