HFH Wood Buffalo is gearing up to celebrate the completion of the build on Railway Avenue! The Railway Avenue build was scheduled to begin in mid-May, but was delayed due to the wildfire, evacuation and subsequent uncertainty over the future of the Waterways community. It is truly a celebration that we were able to continue building in Waterways and complete the home for our partner family within 4 months of being allowed back into the neighborhood.
To mark the occasion, we’ll be hosting a Key Ceremony on the build site, followed by a celebration dinner at the Fort McMurray Legion on Saturday, February 25th.
The Key Ceremony will see our partner family receive the keys to her newly-finished home. The ceremony is a free event and open to the general public. The ceremony starts at 5:30 pm at 7415 Railway Avenue.
Following the Key Ceremony, we will be hosting a dinner to celebrate the completion of the build and all involved who made it possible. We’ll also be offering a sneak peak at the events and build activities we have planned for 2017. The dinner is being held at the Legion in Waterways at 6:30 pm (doors open at 6:00 pm).
Tickets to the dinner are available on Eventbrite ($50/adult & $15/youth under 12). Build volunteers receive a free ticket to the dinner. There’s still time to get your free ticket, with build dates scheduled over the next two weeks to finish up the home.
