Habitat Families Celebrate Summer with Annual Party!

Habitat partner families and staff celebrated the beginning of summer with our annual summer party last weekend at the Lehi Outdoor Pool. Attendees enjoyed the fun pool all to themselves and were able to swim, dive, slide, and climb. They also had yummy Popsicle's and drinks. Special thanks to Liesl and Tyson Eyre for planning the fun evening. It was a blast!

Everyone Loves a Parade!

Habitat partner families, Kenny Seng Construction employees, and other volunteers helped Habitat kick off their parade season on Saturday, June 10th! Walkers participated in both the Springville and Orem Parades and passed out flyers and candy along side our cool red "float". Special thanks to all those that participated, to Kenny Seng Construction for providing the float, to LeAnn, Natalie, Marty, and Crystal for coordinating the volunteers, and to Josh for driving. It was a great day promoting Habitat's programs in the community!
