INDIAN RIVER COUNTY - In appreciation for sweating in the hot summer sun, Indian River Habitat for Humanity held a breakfast event Sept. 21 at Spring Hill Suites/Marriott for its summer volunteers.

After some 50 volunteers enjoyed the Marriott's bountiful breakfast buffet, Emily Wicht, volunteer coordinator, reviewed the summer's accomplishments, shared some volunteer trivia and awarded certificates and prizes.

Door prizes included a garden bag, a bracelet and a one-night stay at the Spring Hill Marriott.

Among the summer's tasks successfully completed by the volunteers: 220 trusses were raised in Grace Meadows, Fellsmere's Habitat neighborhood; 10 recycled homes were refurbished, four were rehabbed and in the Home Center ReStore, 15,123 transactions resulted in enough income to fund 3.5 homes.

Because many of Habitat's dedicated volunteers are snowbirds, the summer months could be a bit light on manpower, but the volunteers who remain in town and work through the often unrelenting heat are very much appreciated.

To express thanks, Habitat holds this September event, in addition to the volunteer appreciation banquet for all volunteers, which takes place in late January or early February.
