Merry Christmas & a happy New Year.

We want to say to all those who have helped Habitat for Humanity Dunedin in its journey through 2008, "Thank you for being part of our journey!" We have built another house; got to enjoy and know another family; employed an office manager and have been tidying up a lot of paper work. If you had a part in that, thank you. We hope that you have a great Christmas and a good start to the new year.

Plans for next year are unfolding. In the next week or so we expect to know what family we will be partnering with next year. We will be meeting regularly with the Mitre Ten Mega Store people as we work toward starting to build the house in their car park. We are planning a start in mid-march. We will have a public meeting to outline plans and hopefully recruit volunteers to make it all happen. This will be late February or early March. Be ready!

Thanks for 2008! Look forward to another significant year in 2009!

If you are interested in becoming a involved let's know. I have been volunteering in Habitat since 1995 and still find it an enjoyable and enriching experience.
