    On Sunday, November 17 our affiliate celebrated the opening of house #55 here in the Lima Area. There were dozens of people who came out to participate in the dedication of Habitat for Humanity - Lima Area's first house in Elida. The newly constructed four-bedroom, 1,300 square-foot house is now home to Sarah and BJ Mack and their family. Many volunteers, donors, churches, and businesses all helped to make this possible. Enjoy some pictures from the event.

Projects that had been waiting in the wings were completed and the facility felt like a new place, especially in the back prep room. We are grateful for their gift.
