In warmer weather, construction begins to pick up speed, and Habitat for Humanity is certainly not slacking. On Friday, April 3, Habitat for Humanity of Martha’s Vineyard will hold two important ceremonies, a testament to the fine progress that organization has been making in putting roofs over Island heads. First, a Dedication Ceremony, wherein the keys to a new home are presented to the new homeowners; and then, a Groundbreaking Ceremony, to inaugurate the launch of a new green construction project.

The dedication ceremony will be held at 1 p.m. at the site located on 21, 11th street, Edgartown, located directly off Edgartown-Vineyard Haven Road. This house was built on land donated by the town of Edgartown with the help of Community Preservation Act funds, countless volunteers and donors.

The groundbreaking ceremony for Eliakim’s Way at 250 State Road, West Tisbury. hosted by the Island Housing Trust, Island Affordable Housing Fund and Habitat for Humanity of Martha’s Vineyard, at 3 p.m. Look for red balloons at these parking locations.
