Happy Fathers' Day I Don't forget! Fathers' Day Is Sunday, June 18 SERVING THE PEOPLE OF HUNTLEY SINCE 1960 Clje JHuntltp jfarmsJitit USPS 580-360 THURSDAY, JUNE 15,1995 - VOLUME 35, NUMBER 11 - HUNTLEY, ILLINOIS TWENTY-FIVE CENTS Huntley youth build Habitat home A new house is emerging due to efforts last week by Huntley youth who worked with the Lake County Habitat inBaldwin, Michigan. Youth participating inFirst Congregational Church's annual Habitat Workcamp changed the scene of gaping cellar walls by putting in all the floor joists, putting on the flooring and raising and securing all the exterior and interior walls. Now, a house is emerging. This house will be the home for a married couple with two children who have dreamed of owning a home, which is now possible through Habitat for Humanity. The parents worked side by side with the Huntley youth and another United Church youth group from Indianapolis. Together, this formidable work party in five days completed major work on this new home. Guidance in home building was provided by a professional computer specialist who is committing three years of his life to Habitat and by an RV couple who travel all over the country giving much of their spare time and skills to Habitat. The Huntiey youth also worked at another site, preparing a mobile home for movement to another site, to allow building a new home of their mobile home site. The Huntiey group stayed at St. Ann's church in Baldwin, prepared their own meals and in their spare time went canoeing, swimming and visited Ludington andLake Michigan sand dunes, before returning to Huntley Saturday night.
