27 homes on Repair Affair slate Saturday
Volunteerism will soar throughout Harrison County Saturday as the eighth annual Repair Affair event takes place.
Volunteers are to meet at 7 a.m. Saturday at the Old Capitol United Methodist Church in Corydon. Those workers will be treated to a pancake and sausage breakfast prepared by members of the Pfrimmer’s Chapel United Methodist Church and receive last-minute instructions before departing at 8 a.m. to their assigned work sites.
This year, 25 teams will participate representing churches and other civic organizations, a few businesses and one family, and the West Haven Home Owners Association.
This year’s event is co-chaired by Steve Shetter and John Daily. Headquarters for event day will be at Limeberry Lumber in Corydon.
Repair Affair was established in 1998 by local volunteers who had seen the success of this program in neighboring communities and wanted to bring this event to Harrison County. Since 1998, approximately 162 homes have been repaired by volunteers of this yearly event. The purpose of Repair Affair is to make repairs to the homes of elderly, low-income or disabled individuals. Repair Affair’s priority is to make homes safe and warm, and enable the homeowner to maintain his/her independence.
