WILLIAMS - On a windy Sunday afternoon, May 15, the Habitat for Humanity Board and friends watched as Jamie Worden dug the first shovel of dirt to begin the construction of her new home.

Bill Baptist, Building site coordinator, and Pam Hendrickson, President of Williams Area Habitat for Humanity, looked on as Jamie turned the first load of dirt using a gold shovel that was presented to her after the ceremony. Mayor John Moore was there and spoke to the group, as well as Bill Baptist, Bishop Troy Mortonsen, and Howard Jackson.

Construction is now under way. Volunteers are needed, so call (928) 635-4393 to get your name on the list. Even if you think you have nothing to offer, you can still be of service by providing the other workers with their needs, such as water, and food or anything else they may need. No job is too small. The last home built had 175 volunteers work on it. Teams will be put together according to the needs of the project. Remember, there is always something you can do.
