The team of Randy Ross, Tyler Lippert, Jake Omara and Tanner Walton posted a winning score of 50 at the Habitat for Humanity golf scramble last month at the Elks 797 Golf Club.
The rain clouds waited to gather until late afternoon Friday as 18 teams of golfers completed their rounds in the Habitat for Humanity scramble outing. A week earlier a downpour had postponed the outing and the players were happy to finish out their golf on a sunny day a week later than planned at the Elks 797 Golf Course, according to a press release from HFH.

Last place team won four tickets to the Cincinnati Reds. The last place team was sponsored by Accurate Heating and Cooling and consisted of Denny Kruzska, Bill Kassinos, Bill Kassinos Jr. and John Hughes.

“Habitat for Humanity of Clinton County depends on the success of this event and several others to provide affordable housing for deserving families in our community,” the release stated.
One fundraising activity that has been successful at growing awareness and funding is the Habitat ReStore. The Clinton County Restore, 1032 Main Street, near the Clinton County Fairgrounds entrance. The ReStore sells new and used building materials and supplies. The store is open 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays, 4:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays.
“It’s a great place to find recycled items for homes, an unusual nick knack, furniture and appliances,” according to the release
This summer, Habitat of Clinton County has doubled down on its building efforts with two homes in the Wilmington area. Habitat for Humanity is searching for families who want to partner with them to build a home in 2017. The homes are not free. Homes are built with volunteer labor and the mortgages are repaid with no interest loans at an affordable rate that meets the financial burdens of the family.
