Jul 26, 2013 - From staff reportsStudents from the Central Wyoming College Second Wind Program assisted Habitat for Humanity Wind River Country in the construction of a playhouse to be raffled off for "Raise the Roof for Habitat." The students were supervised by Bob Schlichting, a volunteer for Habitat for Humanity.
Under Schlichting's guidance, the students built the playhouse from the foundation up and had the opportunity to use construction skills they had learned in previous CWC classes.
The Second Wind Program is a Department of Labor-funded grant through CWC for 18- to 21-year-olds who have a juvenile offense but no adult convictions.
There are three new programs starting in August: customer service specialist, facilities maintenance and foundations of energy. Each program is six months long and equivalent to about a year's worth of education in half the time.
The playhouse will be raffled off to raise money for the 16th home to be built by Habitat for Humanity Wind River Country. Tickets can be purchased for $5 each or six for $25. Tickets will be available during regular business hours on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at Habitat Restore on Main Street in Riverton. The drawing will take place Aug. 3. Ticketholders need not be present to win. Interested persons also can call Pat Stoehr at 851-4150 and she will be happy to make tickets available.
To apply to the program or receive more information, call 855-2335.
