Ground breaking held for Habitat for Humanity home
Jonathan Webb and Nichole Owens and their four children will be the recipients of Wayne's fifth Habitat for Humanity home.
A ground-breaking ceremony was held at the site of the future home, on South Nebraska Street, on Sunday afternoon.
Taking part in the ceremony were Habitat for Humanity Board members Don Buryanek, Dan Rose and Ann Witkowski, along with Wayne City Administrator Lowell Johnson and Greg Worner, a Wayne State College instructor in the Construction Management area.
Worner's students are spending a portion of their 'classroom time' this fall at the building site.
The current house being built is the fifth home built by the Wayne Habitat group since 2003.
Members of the group expressed their appreciation to the city of Wayne for the city's cooperation in helping with not only this build, but with several others since the program began in Wayne.
