The Oregon Association of Realtors visited our Aspire Subdivision and made a wonderful video to share. Enjoy!
Thank you to everyone who attended our street dedication party in October! It was a wonderful day complete with a ribbon cutting on our new street and speeches from our founder, Bernie Turner, and one of our past Executive Directors, Marianne Mills. The McMinnville American Legion Post provided a color guard to kick off the march down the street followed by the McMinnville High School dance team. The festive celebrations ended back at the legion post with cookies and music from the Yamhillbillies.
Turner Way is slated for completion in early 2017. We would like to say a very special Thank You to our event sponsors, Washington Roofing and Gormley Plumbing and Mechanical for helping us build homes, community and hope in Yamhill County. Thank you also to the American Legion, MacHigh Dance Team, and all of our fabulous volunteers who made this day possible.
Join us on Sunday, October 23rd from 2pm-4pm as we dedicate Turner Way in our newly developed Aspire Community. Celebrate with us as we thank our founders and honor 25 years of volunteers and supporters!
Featuring the Yamhillbillies
It’s hard to believe that three months have gone by since I took the helm at MacHabitat. It has truly been a whirlwind! So much has happened in only a short amount of time. I am thrilled to be part of this wonderful organization, that has been building homes, community, and hope for 25 years.
Shortly after I started, Traci Spurgeon and her three beautiful children moved into their new home at the Aspire development. And by the end of the year, this wonderful family should have new neighbors in two adjacent homes. Seeing the joy on the faces of our partner families has convinced me that I am doing the work I was meant to do. It’s why our volunteers, donors, and business partners support MacHabitat’s work!
You may have noticed that the new street is going in at the new Aspire subdivision at Cumulus and Atlantic Streets in McMinnville. Schmidt Excavating has been going gangbusters out there and we anticipate the road will be completed by mid-October. This will open up access to 26 lots, which will bring the total to 34 homes for this subdivision. That means it’s time to celebrate!
Please join us for our Street Dedication party on Sunday, October 23, from 2:00 – 4:00 pm at the Aspire development. Our new street, Turner Way, is named for our beloved founder and friend, Bernie Turner. With help from Gormley Plumbing and Washington Roofing, we are thrilled to be able to honor Bernie and 25 years’ worth of volunteers and supporters. The Yamhillbillies will be playing, the Mac High Dance Team will be dancing, and our Snack Ladies will provide the treats . . . just like they do for our volunteers who work at the home construction sites. I trust that it will be a beautiful Indian Summer day!
Thanks to each of you who has supported our important goal of ending poverty housing. Because of your involvement, MacHabitat’s future is brighter than ever!
