Friday, November 10 was a very special day as we were joined by Canadian veterans and active duty military members on our latest build in Orleans, as well as Lieutenant-General Honourable Andrew Leslie, the MP for Ottawa Orléans.
This was Ottawa’s first-ever Veteran Build Day in part of Habitat GO’s 2017 Military Build program, sponsored by Lockheed Martin. Military veterans and Habitat GO staff and volunteers worked on the construction of four townhomes in Orleans, which is Phase 1 of our largest development to date. The project, also known as “Leacross Landing,” will include 16 townhomes when completed in 2019.
Thank you to all those who were able to attend the event. Despite the chilly weather we had a wonderful day, and being able to host this before Remembrance Day was very special for us all.
