There will be a daily raffle drawing for the month of October. Daily winners will earn $50. Tickets will be available for $5 each throughout the month of September.
The second fundraiser will be a chili cook-off, hosted by the Cal-Mum Parent Teacher Organization, during the Caledonia football homecoming on October 3. The Caledonia Planning Committee will also hold a “fill the boot” type event on the Main, State and North streets sometime during the beginning of October.
“The house is known as House 15 because it is the 15th Habitat for Humanity house built in Livingston County,” Janet Cappotelli said. “We have 1000 raffle tickets for sale and we would really like to see all of them go.”
The Caledonia Planning Committee works on House 15, located at 2964 West Main Street, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays from 8:30a.m. until around 3p.m. and encourages volunteer groups as well as individuals to help out. Some of the organizations that are involved in this project include the Cal-Mum Teachers Association, Knights of Columbus, RIT HFH chapter and the Avon Wesleyan Church.
The future residents of the house, Cedric and Dorothy Bowen, and their four children, along with their extended families, have put in many hours working on the house and providing snacks and refreshments on a nearly daily basis.
Caledonia’s Habitat for Humanity house has seen a great deal of progress since the June 1st groundbreaking. Most of the exterior work is complete, so the interior will be the focus for fall. Installing drywall has just begun so there will be plenty of volunteer opportunities to sand, paint and install interior fixtures and hardware.
The Caledonia Planning Committee thanks the village of Caledonia for its past and present support on behalf of the Bowen family and the entire community.
