Habitat for Humanity Celebrates 25 Years in Sheridan

Habitat for Humanity of the Eastern Bighorns will celebrate 25 years of building homes in Sheridan County with a breakfast and awards program Saturday morning at 1720 Poplar Trail.

Christine Dieterich, who's executive director of the Habitat for Humanity organization in Sheridan, said there are quite a number of people, organizations and businesses that will be recognized during the awards program.

Dieterich said the breakfast will start at 7:30 a.m. and is open to the public, as is the awards program that will follow.

The site of the breakfast and program is Habitat's current build on Poplar Trail, and volunteers will resume work on that project from 10 a.m. until noon.

Dieterich said Habitat started in Sheridan County in 1994 and initially provided homes in Johnson County as well. She said six homes were built in Buffalo until Buffalo organized its own Habitat chapter.

She said the home currently under construction on Poplar Trail is the 52nd home to be built in Sheridan County.

She said two houses are currently under construction, and in the next couple of months, Habitat will be pouring foundations for three more.
