June - Habitat for Humanity - Stanford Kentucky

This is the first Habitat work project for this year, and we chose a project by Care-a-vaners - only volunteers that come by RV. Project here was to break up into three teams to build three home in two weeks.  By two weeks is meant the keys will be given to the new owners on the afternoon of the second Friday.
