St. Pete's Mayor Rick Kriseman turned over the key to the newly built Habitat Pinellas home in the Midtown area to Dominique Baptiste and her children mid-morning before a small crowd of family, friends and Habitat supporters.
In a morning filled with many special moments, perhaps one of the more touching ones came when Dominique's sister, Tamera Harrell, presented her with a welcome mat, welcoming her sister and now, next door neighbor, to the neighborhood! (Tamera's house next door was our 300th home, which was dedicated on June 16th, and on that day Dominique had given her a welcome mat.)
The family also received a friendly welcome from City Council Member Wengay Newton and a welcome basket from Dave Gerald and the congregation of Anona United Methodist Church.
Special thanks also go to Kip Miller of Valpak, who gave Dominique her first piece of "mail," including a $100 gift check, Stephanie Veech, a volunteer who helped built the Baptiste home. She presented the family with a symbolic hammer. Habitat Pinellas board member Jason Miller said the opening prayer and Minister Jackie McGee of Kingdom Bible Christian Church closed the ceremony with a beautiful blessing as everyone placed their hands on the home.
A huge thank you goes to all the volunteers who helped build the Baptiste home. Many thanks to Mayor Kriseman and Council member Newton, and to everyone who participated in our celebration today!
