Habitat for Humanity of Ogle County broke ground May 3 on a new home in Oregon for future homeowner Jennifer Larson (far right) and her son, Vincenzo (second from right), at 210 S. Sixth Street. The lot at the corner of Sixth and Monroe Streets was donated by the Black family. An old house was torn down to make room for the Habitat home. Larson said she expects her family and friends to support her throughout the build. Pictured at the groundbreaking are Habitat volunteers (from left) Tom Hughes, Oregon Mayor Tom Stone, Lori Wagner, Josh Franks, Randy Wagner, Dave Starke, and Bob Van Stedum, the chapter's president.
