Habitat house dedication

Last Saturday, the Habitat for Humanity house was completed and dedicated to the homeowner. During the beautiful ceremony, student representatives from the five participating schools shared about their experiences and presented gifts to the homeowner. Habitat employees addressed the crowd, everyone prayed together for the safety and security of the new home and residents, and a neighbor officially welcomed the homeowner to the neighborhood. The celebration concluded with lunch and a Welcome Home cake. Thank you to all of the Lower School students and families who collected money in their cardboard houses/banks to contribute to the build!
