Longtime Volunteer gets Habitat Home

      A longtime Habitat for Humanity volunteer was herself the recipient of a new home Sunday in Longview. At Longviews Habitat Court on Center street, a new home was dedicated to Barbara Britton.

    Barbara has been a volunteer for countless numbers of hours on homes for other needy families, but this time she volunteered to work on her own home. The house keys and mortgage were turned over to her and she was allowed to put the final touch on the 37 thousand dollar home... tacking up the address numbers.

     It was the 38th home dedicated since habitat for humanity was formed in Longview in 1986. Worldwide habitat has built homes for over 150-thousand families.
