Habitat for Humanity of Clinton County will have a groundbreaking ceremony for its most recent home on Sunday. The public is invited to attend the ceremony at 2 p.m. at the site of the home, 322 19th Place.
Michael Dietz, Marley Seeser and their children, Hailie and Michael Jr., were chosen by Habitat last fall. Families are selected to purchase a Habitat home based on housing and financial need. They are required to earn “sweat equity,” some of which is acquired by participating in the construction of their own home.
Golden shovel awards will be made at the ceremony. Recipients of these awards have donated time, materials and their talents to Habitat for Humanity of Clinton County. Those receiving awards include: Brinkman Building Center, Miller Electric, Cascade Manufacturing, Clinton Electric, Affordable Maintenance, Fulton Concrete, IBEW Local 145, Clinton Trees Forever, A.Y. McDonald Supply and Quality Concrete.
Habitat for Humanity of Clinton County, Inc. is also looking for a family to build a home in DeWitt.
Families who are interested in learning more about this opportunity should attend one of the upcoming informational meetings. This is the first step in the home building process and is the only way to obtain an application.
Meetings will be held:
• 7 to 8 p.m. today at Grace Lutheran Church, 415 10th St., DeWitt;
• 10 to 11 a.m. Saturday at First United Methodist Church, 236 Seventh Ave. South, Clinton; and
• 1 to 2 p.m. Saturday at Grace Lutheran Church, 415 10th St., DeWitt.
