Dean Byers, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Marshall County has announced a groundbreaking ceremony for the 26th family home to be built in Marshall County.

The 26th homesite is on East Center Street in Bourbon. The property was provided by the Town of Bourbon.

Byers said, “This will be the first home to be built on the property and the fourth home in the town of Bourbon.”
The groundbreaking ceremony will be on Sunday, August 20th, Sunday, 2 PM. Reverend Kenneth Cooke of the Faith First Fellowship Church of Bourbon will preside over the ceremony.

Volunteers will be working alongside the homeowner, Kaycee Wagoner, and her family to construct the new home. The project is anticipated to be completed in early spring 2024. This year high school building trades students have been asked to assist with the construction.

Habitat for Humanity builds for families who have a housing need, are willing to help build their homes, and can make an affordable monthly mortgage payment.

The public is invited to attend the groundbreaking ceremony this Sunday in Bourbon at 2 P.M.
