The Rotary Club of Sheridan and Habitat for Humanity of the Eastern Bighorns partnered to build a specially constructed home for a Sheridan girl and her family after an accident left the teenager quadriplegic. Local Rotarian Sandy Baird talks about the history behind the Herbert home project.

Baird says that a friend of the family approached Habitat in hopes that the agency could help build a more suitable home for the family. He explains that the partnership between Rotary and Habitat was necessary to build the Herbert family a home that would work for Hilary's needs.

Baird added that now the home is complete, there will be an open house Saturday from 1 to 3 at the Herbert residence, which is located at 1233 E. Woodland Park Road behind the new Woodland Park School in Sheridan.
