MAYVILLE - An area family finally has the home they've always wanted.
On Sunday, Dec. 9 the Chautauqua Area Habitat for Humanity dedicated a new home for the Webb family of Mayville. After 18 months of work by both the family and volunteers, the new home was finally ready for the Webbs to call it their own.
"We've spent over 4,400 man hours in building this home," said Mike Ricketts, Mid-County Habitat for Humanity chairman. "The dedication of a Habitat home marks the end of hours and hours of giving on the part of our volunteers to help a deserving family realize the dream of owning their own home. It is a time to celebrate and a time to say thank you for all the love and the talents that have gone into this home. ... We've watched this develop from a vacant lot to a nice, three-bedroom, developed home."
