To thank all of the hardworking volunteers who are the heart of the Genesee County Habitat for Humanity, the annual Volunteer Appreciation Picnic is set for Saturday, April 30 at Memorial Park, 1026 Church Street in Flint. The picnic is sponsored by the William S. Ballenger Trust and is Habitat’s kick off of the 2016 building season. Those attending will be served some tantalizing BBQ from Barlow’s Gourmet Sauces & Authentic BBQ. There will also be a live performance of Mystic Dub with their funky fusion style or reggae, funk, and jazz. To make the day even more fun, there will be a workshop: Grow your Dinner – What it Takes to Eat Sustainable.
Guests are invited to stay after the picnic for the dedication of the new basketball courts in the park, which will feature competition games, a basketball give-away and even more food! The Vehicle City Royals, Flint’s very own pro-basketball team, will be hosting a skill and drill workshop.
GCHFH is an organization that provides decent affordable homes for people who otherwise could not afford to buy a home and is financed through donations of money and materials. The houses are sold at no profit. The work is done completely by dedicated and hard-working volunteers.
