Each year, Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity partners with countless volunteers, donors, and supporters to make the dream of homeownership come true for our partner families. In 2011, our organization partnered with the Fronning family to complete the first Habitat Home in Barnesville.
Rogena contributed more than 250 hours of “sweat equity” in the Habitat ReStore and on the construction of her future house and the future homes of other Habitat Partner Families. Rogena and her two children moved into to their new home in early October and the family was able to celebrate their first Holiday season in their new home.
Below is a note from Rogena expressing her thankfulness for Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity and sharing how the family enjoyed their first holidays in their new home. We hope you enjoy reading this note as much as we do!
Dear Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity:
We have been so very blessed this year. Not only do we finally have a space to call our own, but we can FINALLY decorate as we choose. We really looked forward to having a space to do with as we pleased… to not have to worry about hanging lights here or not there. And as you can see our pets also enjoyed the holiday decorations. I must say it was really fun to visit with the neighbors on how they decorate their space for the holidays.
We also had our first dinner guests over for Thanksgiving. Our home felt so warm and cozy and inviting. Thank you so much for giving us a safe, warm place to call our own!.
To the Build Crew especially- Thank you for what you do. I have learned so much from all of you. You are such a blessing to so many.
Many Blessings to you always,
Rogena Fronning and Family
