MAYVILLE - The Mayville Mid-County Habitat for Humanity invites all those interested in volunteering in a non-profit effort for a family in need to attend a community information meeting on Wednesday, May 22 at Carlson Center at Mayville's Lakeside Park at 5:30 p.m.

"The meeting will focus on building our third house," Project Coordinator Mike Ricketts said. "We are preparing to build this home at 7 Patterson Street in the village of Mayville."

The purpose of the meeting is to provide information regarding Habitat for Humanity, including family selection process, community involvement, hospitality and construction, Ricketts said. "Our hope is to recruit volunteers to work behind the scenes on the organizational committees as well as weekly construction volunteers," he said.

Whether involved with previous building or would like to contribute skills for the first time, all in the community are invited to learn more about building a home for a needy family. As for skills, the ability to help with any task needed to build a house, previous volunteers are very adept at teaching in a short time.

Anyone in the Mayville area who knows a family in need of a house may also pick up family applications at the meeting.

"Come see how you and members of your church or community group can become involved in Habitat for Humanity," Ricketts said. "Through the work of Habitat, thousands of low-income families have found new hope in housing."

All those in attendance also will enjoy the pizza and beverages available. For more information, call Ricketts at 753-7831.
