    Once again, great event and opportunity to learn and give back to the community. I would have rated 5-stars, but our HOPE attendance was low. Thank you Shaznin and Joanne for coming, and K. Patrice and Lee - I expect to see you next time!

    I really hate to do this, but I'm not feeling well today so I won't be able to make it. Looks like you have a decent group today. Have fun everyone!

    Jennifer,
    Just want to make sure you got my email that I won't be able to make this build. I am out of town on a business trip. Please contact me for any future builds. My appologies for not being able to make this one.

    Just 2 quick reminders - 1) We are getting free catered lunch from Subway, which will be assorted sandwiches, chips, cookie and a drink. 2) Please update your RSVP now if you need to make changes. If you know someone outside of HOPE that might like to come, we still have a few slots.

      That's awesome! Very generous of them. Even though I will be there for the build, please count me out for the free lunch, due to dietary restrictions.

    Jennifer,

    I have an unexpected business trip that came up so I won't be able to make it on the 12th. Keep me in mind for any other weekend.

    Thanks

    Hi Everyone - Just a quick note to say thanks for signing up for the upcoming Habitat event (and if you haven't signed up, there is still time!) We have been asked to bring a crew of 10-20 people, so still have spaces to fill. Please let me know if there are any questions. Looking forward to seeing some of our repeaters at this one!
