Habitat gets ready for next build

ORONO - Habitat for Humanity of Greater Bangor is taking time to thank its volunteers.

The organization held a budget meeting Tuesday night before honoring those who help organize and assist in Habitat builds.


Since 1989, the group has built 17 homes for low income families.


Habitat's next project will take place at 611 Ohio street in Bangor.


The cost of construction is funded through efforts by members of the st. Paul the Apostle Parish.


Construction Manager Lin Lufkin said " We selected a family. They've done their agreement to the floor plan, so we're about ready to start work."


Construction will begin at the Ohio Street location on July 8.

Susan Farley, a familiar face in Eastern Maine, has joined the WVII ABC 7 and Fox 22 News team.

Most recently Susan served as the executive director at the Ellsworth Area Chamber of Commerce, but now returns to her roots in news, a long history that began in 1987 when she held the position of news director at WDEA/ WWMJ radio stations. In 1990 she became the assignment editor at WABI-TV for six years. She left the station to run her own successful business while continuing to assist WABI in coverage of elections and other special events. She returned to WABI full-time in 2003 to serve as the station's Coastal Bureau chief for the next six years.

"I am very happy for this opportunity to return to the newsroom," said Farley. "I'm looking forward to working with Craig Colson and the entire ABC 7/Fox 22 News team to bring quality news reporting to our viewers."
