It’s starting to feel like Fall, sort of.  There is so much happening over the next few months.  Thank you for playing such an important role with Habitat Metro Denver.  We could not do what we do without you!

Sable Ridge Celebration
I hope you are planning on attending the last dedication for Sable Ridge 10.  It will also be a celebration.  We’ll be celebrating 3+ years of hard work, 12 buildings and 51 families in this new community.  It is on Sat, Oct 29th from 1-3pm.  The build sites will have a half day and end at noon in order for all staff and volunteers to attend.  If you haven’t RSVP’d yet please do so at https://www.habitatmetrodenver.org/news/detail/join-us-at-our-sable-ridge-celebration/114/  Important information will be emailed to you after you RSVP so don’t delay.

Fall and Winter Build Projects
Sable Ridge is wrapping up and we’re starting our next largest development to date.  To kick off Sheridan Square we’re having a floor blitz build day with our AmeriCorps Alum on Sat, Oct 29th (before the Sable Ridge Celebration) to get the floor system in and floors decked.  The build day will go from 9am to noon.  If you would like to participate please contact Colleen at cmentz@habitatmetrodenver.org.

Please let me know where you will be building.  To give you the full picture of what is happening this Fall here’s a rundown:

Home Repairs will continue to build through the Fall and Winter.  For those at Sable Ridge looking for a new place to go they can always use Regular Volunteers.  Please contact me for location and dates.

Renovations has a few projects going on at the same time.  You’ll get to work with Trevor and he builds on Mon, Wed, Thurs and Fri.  Come out one day a month, you can work with Trevor to pick the day and scope of work.

Save the Date!  The Regulars Holiday party will be on Tues, Dec 13th.  5:30 to 7:30 at the Habitat Office.  Start thinking about your white elephant gift now.  I look forward to seeing all of you, I hope you can make it.  Formal evite to follow.

Bring a Friend
As you can see we have A LOT going on at Habitat Metro Denver.  We have three dynamic programs and we need more volunteers.  If you know of anyone that would enjoy being a Regular Volunteer please invite them out to build with you this Fall.  Or maybe you can get a group together and come out and build as a group.  Building together is a great way to spend time with your family, friends, alumni, church and what better time than the holidays.  If you have questions about scheduling a group you can contact Lauren at lrussek@habitatmetrodenver.org.  The more the merrier.

Holiday Closures
The build sites will be closed on Nov 24, 25, 26 for Thanksgiving and Dec 24-Dec 31 for Christmas and New Years.
