    Check out the Habitat for Humanity site. Dedication for the 48th and 49th houses is this Saturday at 11::00. The location is 360 Argyle St, near the corner of N Ross Ln and Sweet Rd. One house is for a single mother sponsored by a collaboration of local churches, the other is for a local veteran who is a single dad.
