Habitat for Humanity will host groundbreaking ceremony

Habitat for Humanity of Island County is inviting the public to attend a groundbreaking ceremony for a new home located at 3160 Summit Boulevard, Oak Harbor at noon on Friday, March 1.

The house will become the “forever home” for the Dunlap Family, according to a press release.
