On Saturday, November 3rd local dignitaries, HFHOGN staff and volunteers, donors and Parry Sound community members came together to welcome two local Parry Sound families to their new homes. The homes at 24A and 24B Addie St. have been under construction since July of 2017 and, after months of hard work and over 3,800 hours contributed by local volunteers, HFHOGN is ready to turn the keys over to the Anderson and Norrie families.
