Habitat Hosts Groundbreaking Ceremony for Lake Kennedy Homes in Suffolk
In celebration of Make a Difference Day, Saturday, October 24, Habitat SHR held a ceremonial groundbreaking and “framing frenzy” in the Lake Kennedy community in Suffolk. The Lake Kennedy development will feature nine new single-family units — four two-story homes and five one-story homes.
Our construction staff, along with a team of 60 volunteers from ADS, Inc. and WVEC-ABC 13 participated in the “framing frenzy”—working nonstop to get the job done. With hammers in hand, sleeves rolled up, and great weather on our side, we were able to frame the exterior walls of two of the nine homes!
The ceremony included brief remarks from Brad Kirkpatrick, our Interim Executive Director; Christine Early, the Chief Operating Officer; and Mayor Linda Johnson from the City of Suffolk. Recent Habitat homeowners, Malika Traynham and Monsurat Kadri, and several city council representatives also attended the event.
Special thanks to our lunch sponsor and continued supporter of Habitat SHR, Chick-Fil-A of Main Street in Suffolk!
