Habitat Officially Dedicates Ponderosa Hills Home
Tuolumne, CA — Habitat of Tuolomne County officially dedicated its fifth home in a Saturday afternoon ceremony.
The new home owners are Denice McKenzie and her three daughters.

The 1,200 square foot two level structure has a great room concept downstairs with three upstairs bedrooms. The Whirlpool Corporation donates a refrigerator and a range for every Habitat home built in America. In addition A.T.& T. donates two years of complimentary internet connection service.
David Bolles, the president of the Board of Directors for Habitat of Tuolumne County hosted the 45 minute ceremony. Third District Supervisor Teri Murrison was on hand for the official ribbon cutting.
The movein date for the McKenzie is schedule to take place early in June.
