Women Build Dedication Ceremony


Peterborough Ontario


Oct. 01, 2012


On Monday October 1, 2012, World Habitat Day, Habitat for Humanity Peterborough and District will hand over the keys to first time homeowners, Sarah Burgess and Shawn Ellis and their two sons Chris, 11 and John, 3. Sarah and Shawn will be the new owners of a single-detached, raised bungalow on 753 Young Street in Peterborough. 

The dedication ceremony celebrates the hard work of hundreds of local volunteers and the generosity of community partners and donors who all made this Women Build project possible. For seven years, the Burgess-Ellis family have waited to own their own home and finally this dream has become a reality. 

Habitat for Humanity Peterborough and District is also working with Habitat Northumberland to celebrate the dedication of two Habitat Northumberland homes on the morning on October 1. Both affiliates will be present at all three dedications on World Habitat Day as part of a cross-media event.
