Habitat breaks ground for No. 9  Send a link to a friend

[AUG. 9, 2005]  On a slightly warm but perfectly beautiful evening in Lincoln, the Logan County chapter of Habitat for Humanity broke ground one more time. The ceremony marked the start of the ninth site that the ecumenical faith-based group has either built or renovated to make a decent, affordable home.

The new home will be built from the ground up on a lot located at 1305 Lincoln Ave., the corner of Lincoln Avenue and Hamilton Street. The Jim and Rita Everson family will be its recipients.

Lincoln Mayor Beth Davis and representatives of the Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce joined the family and Habitat board members in the groundbreaking ceremony on Monday evening.

The group exercises a physical and spiritual partnership with families in helping them acquire and build a home of their own.

The Eversons will be consulted as the home is built and will be a part of the construction crew. Volunteers, past Habitat families and those wishing to be considered for a future home will assist them in the work.

When that ceremony was concluded the group moved over the new Habitat warehouse at 700 N. Kickapoo St. in Lincoln to bless that new property and partake in refreshments.

A new family has already been selected for the next Habitat home. It will go to Dawn Ferguson and family.
