200 ready for Repair Affair Saturday

More than 200 volunteers will work throughout Harrison County Saturday at the seventh annual Repair Affair.
Volunteers will work at 19 job sites. They will meet first at 7 a.m. Saturday at the Corydon Presbyterian Church where they will be treated to a pancake and sausage breakfast prepared by members of Pfrimmer’s Chapel United Methodist Church and receive last-minute instructions before departing at 8 a.m. to their assigned work sites.
This year, 18 teams will participate. They represent churches, civic organizations, a few businesses, one family, and the West Haven Home Owners Association.
This year’s event is co-chaired by Steve Shetter and John Daily. Headquarters will be at Limeberry Lumber in Corydon.
Repair Affair was established in 1998 as a Leadership Harrison County class project. Since 1998, approximately 159 homes have been repaired by volunteers.
The purpose of Repair Affair is to repairs homes of elderly, low-income or disabled individuals. Repair Affair’s priority is to make the homes safe and warm, and enable the homeowner to maintain his or her independence.
