"Home Dedication on Steroids"
See the lovely new interior!
We are so excited to celebrate and dedicate the Ducote rehab project at 3704 First Avenue as it nears completion that we are having a BIG party! Thanks to Papa Murphy's Take 'N' Bake, we will be providing slices of their delicious pizza. And thanks to Kym Drain, refreshing Buhl Water will be available as well. We so deeply appreciate these wonderful local businesses for their generous donations!
The father of the family, Reggie, a talented musician, will be performing acoustic music and the actual dedication ceremony, at 12:30 p.m., will include a blessing by Kelsey Ducote's father, Deacon Rick Moravitz of St. Anthony's Catholic Church of Ely.
Big thanks also go to Karine Woodman who owns the new Tech Tank across the street from Ducote’s house.
Guests may use her lot, both on the side and the back of the building, for parking.
As you probably know, the Ducotes have worked hard to put in the sweat equity hours required as part of their downpayment. With five darling little ones, time is tight for this couple, but they are getting it done! Although there are still some final details to complete before the family can close on the house and move in, they are excited to move out of cramped quarters and to have the great space this rehabilitated home provides.
We also thank all of the community volunteers who helped make this house a home, including our friends from the Delta Call Center, the local HRA, Habitat for Humanity of Minnesota staff and board members and our great friends from Trinity Lutheran Church of Detroit Lakes, who give us a week of skilled labor a year. Special thanks to Dave Ongaro and his Monday night group from Blessed Sacrament Church and Habitat's Quad City regulars, who made the drive over to share their time and talent! IT TAKES A COMMUNITY TO BUILD A COMMUNITY!
No RSVPs required, just come and join the fun!
