As you may know, the Washington DC Rotary Club has sponsored a LEED certified house in the Ivy neighborhood of Washington as part of our Centennial Celebration.  The Ceremonial Groundbreaking on this house occurred on June 30 and we are now ready for the next event.
On Saturday, September 29, we will be treated to a very special Habitat experience. The Habitat staff will provide a tour and explanation of the systems and techniques that will make these houses 90% more efficient than regular construction, followed by an opportunity to actually work on one of the houses.

The day will run from 9:00 to 3:30 and be broken into two parts.  During the morning, we will have the tour of the systems and techniques used in a LEED certified house, followed by lunch provided by Habitat.  After lunch, those who wish to participate in the “build opportunity” can stay until 3:30.  I encourage anyone who is interested to sign up.  Prior experience is not necessary.

You can attend for only the morning session or for the whole day but we need to know who is coming in advance so please register online here.

If you have never volunteered for a Habitat work day, this is a great way to get your feet wet and find out what it is all about.  Your participation with fellow Rotarians helps bring one deserving DC family closer to fulfilling their dream of home ownership.

A map of where the build site is located is below.  Thanks for considering this terrific volunteer opportunity.
