Delta Muskoka Resorts Build - 2011

We had our ground breaking ceremony for the "Delta Muskoka Resorts Build" on Muskoka Beach Rd., in Gravenhurst today, May 7.

 This building project will start when the excavators can get on the site - probably late May. We hope to call on our volunteers in early June.

About 50 people attended - Board members from HFH Muskoka, some staff members, Delta Muskoka resorts representatives, Gravenhurst mayor and councillors, district of Muskoka Chair, designated Habitat partner families, committee members, interested neighbours and keen volunteers. Here are some photos of the exciting event.
