Amanda Strickler and her two sons are especially looking forward to Christmas this year. Construction on her new Habitat for Humanity home started Thursday morning and everyone hopes she will be celebrating Christmas in her home. The home in the Skyline subdivision of Lady Lake is the seventh Habitat Humanity Lake-Sumter home to be built in that area.
Citizen’s First Bank is the corporate sponsor for this home which includes providing many volunteer hours through its employees. After a brief dedication ceremony, the volunteers got right to work taking advantage of the time before it gets too hot to work.
