Habitat dedicates Sidney home


SIDNEY – Habitat for Humanity of Miami and Shelby Counties, Ohio (HFHMSCO) has announced the dedication of Kelly Beemer’s home on Sunday, Sept. 23, 2018, at 1:30 p.m. at 524 Second Ave. Sidney.

Beemer has met Habitat’s criteria for homeownership of need, sweat equity, and assumption of a 20-year, zero interest mortgage. Her family and friends, along with volunteers from Emerson and Cargill, have completed the four-bedroom home.

“We (Habitat) would like to thank all the volunteers from Emerson and Cargill, as well as, the many local contractors, suppliers and business who have contributed to the completion of this build. It never happens without strong local support” said William Horstman, executive director and COO.

“Emerson is proud to support the creation of a comfortable home for a local family,” said Ann Runner, vice president of Human Resources for Emerson Commercial & Residential Solutions. “Our Sidney engineering and manufacturing facility and Helix Innovation Center at the University of Dayton are focused on ensuring human comfort and health, so this mission is close to our heart. We are grateful to have a large presence of employees in Shelby County who are dedicated to their communities and excited to support this critical effort.”

The public is invited to the dedication ceremonies.
