Habitat for Humanity of Wausau will host a pair of home dedications Nov. 18 at 152112 Tulip Lane in Rib Mountain and Nov. 19 at 152141 Daffodil Lane in Rib Mountain.
The homes are the 67th and 68th homes to be built by Habitat for Humanity since 1990. The community is welcome to attend both events. The homes will be open for viewing at 5:30 p.m., with dedication ceremonies at 6 p.m.
Board members of the organization will lead the ceremony and presentations will be made by the Marathon County Republican Women, Altrusa Club and Peyton’s Promise along with HFH of Wausau volunteers. The homes were partially built by the Mosinee High School construction trades class, led by teacher Ron Klinner, and the D.C. Everest Senior High construction trades class, led by Chad Pernsteiner. Students framed the homes during the 2018/19 school year, which were transported and crane-set on their waiting foundations in May.
Much of the home sites’ preparation and finish work was provided by HFH volunteers and the partner families. An average of 8-10 volunteers assisted each week from May through September.
“A home dedication is the culmination of many, many hours of volunteer work, on the part of students, teachers, volunteers and partner families,” said Berland Meyer, construction coordinator on site, in a news release. “It’s always a heartwarming experience.”
