On Monday, November 11th, we had the privilege of holding our first home dedication of the season! Congratulations to Karin Kopischke and her children – Tyler, Eli, and Sabrina – on their new home in St. Peter!
We had a full house for the event, which included a short program celebrating the new homeowners, and a delicious meal afterwards. Karin is never one to hide her excitement, and it was a joy to see how happy she and her family are to be moving in to their own home. She shared with the group how long she has been waiting for this day and how much she enjoyed tracking the progress – starting with the initial building of the house by local students at the St. Peter High School up through the sweat equity that she and her family and friends put in and all the hours contributed by Habitat staff and volunteers.
A huge thank you to everyone who was able to attend, for all the great food that many people contributed, to the blankets donated by Trinity Lutheran Church in St. Peter, to Pastor Joy of Trinity Lutheran for her help with the dedication, to Warren Peterson and the St. Peter HS students for their work constructing the house, and to Habitat’s Construction Manager Mike Kroenke and Terry and Carol Endresen for their countless hours dedicated to completing construction.
