Rotarians know that "Creating Hope in the World" often starts in our own community! This morning, 10 members of the Brookings Rotary club, joined by five staffers from the Brookings Area Chamber of Commerce, helped build hope and a home for Brookings Area Habitat for Humanity. Volunteers painted, washed windows and floors, and cleaned up the work site for a Habitat house currently under construction on Steamboat Trail. The home will soon be sold to the partner family, currently fulfilling their own "sweat equity" hours as part of their purchase agreement. Thanks to Habitat's Building Supervisor Jason Hett for our clear instructions and the opportunity to serve! The service project was coordinated by Rotarian Steve Sewell, President-Nominee for the Brookings Club. Other Rotarians who participated were Jen Olson, Larry Janssen, Don Norton, Del Johnson, Deb DeBates, Ruth Dickinson, Kay Norton, Toby Uecker, and Rod Schaefer.
