Habitat for Humanity Update

by Peggy Richardson

Spring has sprung and the work has begun on the Habitat House in Liberty! April 17th the foundation was dug and prepared for pouring. The framers are all set to begin. The SCHFH is in need of Plumbers and Electricians. The plan is to have volunteer crews work Wednesdays and Saturdays, from 8 am – 12:30 pm. Several organizations and churches have offered to bring in food and refreshments for the workers. Please call Mark Hackett at 845-292-8282 or let Peggy know if you would have time to offer for this project. A wonderful quilt created by Sally Abrams and Lori Nixon is being raffled. Peggy has tickets available. Cost is $3 for one, $5 for two and $20 for ten raffle tickets. Also, drop off your dead ink and toner cartridges at Yaun Company for the SCHFH. We have the recycle bags bar-coded for this Habitat House to receive up to $1 for each cartridge sent in. The collection box is by our receptionist in Liberty, or leave them at our other branch locations in New Paltz and Albany or give them to your Yaun Co. sales rep. Thank you to all who sponsored the Oct’05 walka- thon. This was the Beach Lake Unitarian Universalist Fellowship’s 13th annual Walk to help charities in the area. All of the pledges were put in a pot and split 4 ways, $1,200 each! The checks were presented on March 26, 2006. Thank you again!
