Marilyn Knauss does some last-minute cleaning at a new Habitat for Humanity home on the corners of Longhorn and McLane roads.

The Payson Area Habitat for Humanity will have a dedication ceremony for Phase II of Longhorn Village from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 8.

The event will begin with a welcome and dedication ceremony and then the homes will be open to tour. Refreshments will be provided.

Visitors are encouraged to bring a “pound of love” — such things as paper goods, cleaning supplies, staple foods, anything to help the families settle into to their new homes.

The dedication completes the second phase of the PAHH project at Longhorn Village, at the intersection of McLane and Longhorn roads, just the west of the Payson High School parking lot.

The first phase included four townhouse homes that were completed in December 2008. This phase includes five more homes. A third phase is planned to complete the site.

Each family has qualified for these homes by meeting financial requirements, providing “sweat equity,” and completing formal classes.

Families purchasing these homes are: Amber DeWitt and son Ethan; Kellie LaFave and sons Ryan and Brandon; Emily Morton and son Ravin; Sharon Weston and Jonathon, Micah, Jericho, Dakota and Josiah; and Mick and Jackie Wolf and Logan, Austin,= and MacKensie

For more information, call Cris Royer, executive director, (928) 951-0330 or Ric Hinkie, chair of the PAHH family partnership committee, (928) 848-4501.
