#43 Home Dedication!
The volunteers are finishing the final details and the Marvins are excited to become new home owners. A chilly December 15th was the home dedication for the current build.
Lori shared that this year the build had over 60 volunteers that worked directly on the build site providing over 3000 hours of volunteer hours. This is incredible in so many ways, especially during this year of the COVID-19 Pandemic!!!
We did it! We can’t wait to build more in 2021. Our goal is to build two homes next year!!!
Check our calendar often for upcoming events and happenings in the Door County Habitat community.

Artists Support Door County Habitat
Ardus DuBois is a self taught artist as is her daughter, Sherry. They share the shop that is filled to the brim with their many original pieces re-purposed or upcycled for a second life. I asked Sherry where they discover the raw materials for their artistry and she answered simply “everywhere including the Habitat ReStore.”
“Supporting Habitat is a natural for us; since they are all about building homes for people and we’re all about decorating them.”
Ardus DuBois established her first gallery in the largely Belgian community of Namur, Wisconsin. When she opened her doors the travelers on Highway 57 often stopped in to browse through the shop. The major thoroughfare was rerouted away from Namur, and she began her transition further North to Sturgeon Bay.
Ardus and her daughter happily participate in the bird house and butterfly house projects and look forward contributing to the continuing success of Habitat for Humanity. Their shop is located at 59 S. Madison Street on the West side of Sturgeon Bay. We thank them for their support.
