PHOTO: Habitat home dedication

A crowd forms on the sidewalk as Lori Baye, on the porch in the background, a member of the local Habitat for Humanity organization, welcomes everyone Friday night to the new home dedication on East First Avenue. The home, which started construction in June 2013, is finished and ready for Amy Jorgensen and her family to move in, Baye said. Jorgensen will be able to move in to the home in the next couple of weeks and is given an interest-free mortgage through Habitat for Humanity for the “hard cost” of the home, which is roughly 60 percent of its value, Baye said.
