Top story of the month is that we welcomed two new members — Mike and Joanne Vidal — at our Board and Business Meeting on Monday, February 4. At the same meeting we voted to pay for the conversion to LED lights in our adopted bunkhouse at Camp Pride.
President Peter and Secretary Sally (sounds a bit like a title for a children’s story!) attended the Zone meeting on Saturday February 16. Four of the seven Clubs in the Zone (Meredith, Wolfeboro, Whittier, and Moultonborough) shared successes, ideas, needs, and news. The speaker was from Habitat for Humanity. I learned quite a bit, including the fact that two Habitat homes have been built in NH. Individuals and families are welcome to help with anything from the building process, to referring people with needed skills and services, to donating to the ReStore. Thought I would share some of that information below:
Habitat ReStores are retail outlets where used and surplus building materials are sold at a fraction of normal prices. Proceeds from ReStores help local affiliates fund the construction of Habitat houses within their communities. Materials sold by Habitat ReStores are usually donated from building supply stores, contractors, demolition crews or from individuals who wish to show their support for Habitat. In addition to raising funds, ReStores help the environment by re-channeling good, usable materials into house building. Normal items would include stoves, refrigerators, washing machines and dryers, architectural items; cabinets; doors; flooring; hand and power tools; hardware; light fixtures; lumber; plumbing fixtures; roofing; windows and more!
Can I donate materials?
Yes! In addition to shopping at the ReStore a great way to show your support is by donating materials. All donations are tax deductible. Check out the website or call 603-536-1333
