Thumbs up to another family who will receive a new home thanks to Habitat for Humanity. The Mid-County Habitat for Humanity group is hosting a public welcoming event for Thomas and Rosemarie Bottomley and their three daughters, Caitlyn, 12; Haley, 10; Emma, 5; and Lilian, 1 years old; today at 1 p.m. at the 7 Patterson St. construction site in Mayville. Rosemarie noted that this was the second time the family applied for the housing, mostly because they are in more need. When she lived in Dewittville, she was a nurse's aide, but now is a stay-at-home mom. The family now lives across the street from the current housing under construction, but needs more room. Anyone willing to volunteer their time can participate on Saturdays with opportunities ranging from actual construction to support activities. For more information, call Mike Ricketts at 753-7831.
