On April 4, Habitat for Humanity of Boone County conducted its first groundbreaking ceremony for future homeowner Anita Kolp at her future home site, 1411 S. Meridian St. in Lebanon. “I am so thankful that Habitat is building a house for me, and I am excited to get started and help all the volunteers this summer,” Kolp said. Family, friends, Habitat staff and friends of HFHBC gathered to break ground for the seventh annual Apostles Build which will begin with a wall build on May 4 in the St. Alphonsus Catholic Church parking lot. More than 12 Boone County churches and local businesses will partner for the build providing financial support and volunteers for the eight-week build, and all Boone County residents are invited to help with the build which will last May through early July.
