Habitat for Humanity celebrating homeowners with picnic

PADUCAH, KY – For recipients of houses built by Habitat for Humanity,  walking through the doors to their homes is a precious gift. Paducah-McCracken County Habitat for Humanity  says it’s planning a party for homeowners and volunteers.

Volunteers and the homeowners themselves build Habitat for Humanity houses. The nonprofit housing organization works in the United States and around the world.

The celebration is invitation only, and group says 100 people — including homeowners, their families and habitat volunteers — have been invited. The event, which will be held on from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 26, at Noble Park in Paducah, will include an awards ceremony for homeowners who have “excelled in their home ownership.”

The groups says the Paducah Tilghman High School marching band will perform, and there will be games and food.

Guests will meet the new  Paducah-McCracken County Habitat for Humanity Board of Directors, and board members and volunteers will grill lunch for guests.
