Habitat, family to conduct wall-raising Saturday
A local family will soon take a major step in the construction of their new home.
On Saturday, the family will join Mitchell Regional Habitat for Humanity in celebrating a “wall raising.”
The event starts at 9 a.m. at 1004 E. First Ave. The public is invited.
Local contractors and Mitchell Technical Institute students have been hard at work getting the project to this point. The new homeowners are required to put in “sweat equity” as they partner with Habitat for Humanity to make this new home a reality.
“The wall raising isn’t a fancy ceremony,” said Lori Baye, local chairwoman. “It’s just the excitement of our family, our board, and our volunteers coming together to get those walls raised to start the actual construction. We hope everyone will come join us on Saturday.”
