Habitat for Humanity
This year's home is being built for the Sara Williamson family at 2136 Pisgah Circle, Huntsville.. This is a different neighborhood from past years.
Since everyone will be hammering, if you have a hammer to bring, please feel free, just be sure to mark it somehow so somebody doesn't pick it up thinking it belongs to Habitat. Work gloves are useful too :)
Remember, you must sign a waiver/emergency contact form before you can start work. Someone will be collecting them. You only have to do this on your first workday. You will also be asked to sign in so hours can be tracked. This you'll be asked to do every workday. Click on the links below for forms. They will also be available at the site. REMEMBER - minors under the age of 14 are not permitted, and those between the ages of 14 and 16 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
As most of you know, a group of retirees works on Tuesdays and Thursdays to get things ready for whatever is scheduled on each Saturday. I believe the group starts at 8. Unlike Saturdays, snacks and lunch are not provided. Dick Allen of Good Shepherd leads this group. If you would like to work on Tuesdays and/or Thursdays, please let Dick know and he will add you to his mail list. His e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.
As always, thanks so much for the support you provide this ministry.
Habitat for Humanity is an organization that enables parishioners to get “hands on” in the community by building houses for those in needs.
It also gives parishioners the experience of fellowship, while building a good home for people in need.
Look for announcements for new builds in early spring.

Latest News - 2017 Build
Drywall won't be up by Saturday, so we obviously won't be painting as planned on the schedule. As I said in the first message, the schedule is very flexible :) Since we don't work during Holy Week, our next PLANNED workday will be Saturday April 22nd. There will be coffee and snacks for the morning and lunch will be served. Remember, if you want to work and can't be there at 8, no problem. Come whenever you can, and leave when you need to. This is also the day that St. John's will do lunch.
I will not be sending an update e-mail next week, but you will get one on the 18th or 19th. Since things tend to get a little crazy with inspections and April weather, be sure to read your updates for the rest of the build.
