As shown on the ICC Chapter News:
“Since 2009, the Members of ICC Upper Great Plains Region III have worked on a Habitat for Humanity home. In years past, the Chapter had a much larger group, but this year to save travel time and money the Chapter split its group. Some went to Minnesota and some to Wisconsin. Those who volunteered at the Mankato, Minnesota, site are pictured from left: Patrick Parsley, Susan Hoese, Doug Hoese, Christine Rose, Larry Huff and Ron Hoover.”
Ray LaHaye from the Arizona Building Officials sent this thank you to the NDBOA and several other chapters from around the country. The group intends the raffle to help offset the costs they will incur in hosting the ICC annual business meeting October 30-November 3, 2011.
