Thanks to everyone who volunteered this past year and contributed to making it a productive and successful one. And a personal thank you to everyone for the warm welcome (or rather the re-welcome) I recieved when I returned to Habitat this year. It made the transition for much easier for me and I appreciate it.

For anyone who is not aware, Habitat is on Winter Holiday as of 12/22 and we will not be resuming construction until Tuesday 1/6/2009. I will post the work locations the Friday (1/2/2009) before returning to work. I look forward to seeing you all in the new year and I hope everyone will be returning refreshed, envigorated and energized. We've got alot of work ahead of us in 2009 so rest up while you've got the chance.

Happy Holidays to all!

Have a Happy New Year!

To ease the travel and snow management burden on Habitat staff and volunteers, the work day for Saturday 12/20 will begin at 10:00 instead of 9:00. The location has not changed, we will still be working on 15/23 Wilson St. Please use your best judgement regarding travel safety and road conditions. We will be lax in our tardiness policy for this weekend(and this weekend alone).

This information is applicable to the Sunday work day as well.

Please drive safetly.

As of Thursday 12/18 the plan for Saturday 12/20 and Sunday 12/21 is to work on 15/23 Wilson St. The forecast for Friday 12/19 is for heavy snow which may make for difficult travel over the weekend, volunteers should use their best judgement whether or not it is safe enough for them to attend.
Please be aware that the houses are not fully enclosed so all volunteers should dress appropriately for the exposure.
The Sunday work day will go from 10:00 to 2:00.

Hello Habitat volunteers and welcome to my blog.
My plan for posting the volunteer work schedule is to post a new schedule every Friday evening for the following day (Saturday) through the next Saturday. I would suggest, however, that everyone who has not registered to be notified of any updates, check the schedule the night before they volunteer in case there have been any changes.

The schedule for the period from 12/13/08 to 12/21/08 is as follows:

Saturday 12/13

All volunteers should go to Wilson St. It will be very cold so dress appropriately.

Tuesday 12/16

All volunteers to the Habitat office, from there we will be going to Hallock St to do some land-scaping. If we finish that quickly we will go to Wilson St to frame.

Wednesday 12/17

We will be starting from the Habitat office and heading to various locations to do minor siding repairs.

Thursday 12/18

This will only be a half day for volunteers due to the Habitat staff holiday luncheon. We will start at the office.

Saturday 12/20 and Sunday 12/21

All volunteers should go to Wilson St. Please note that Sunday is a short work day.
