SPONSOR AND EXHIBITOR INFORMATION & REGISTRATION


Construction Career Days EXHIBITOR Opportunities
We are seeking 35 indoor exhibitors and participation is free. The best way to engage students is through hands-on-activities and we strongly encourage you to include interactivity at your booth. We have found that exhibitors with hands-on activities have the most traffic and the best chance of getting their message across. The planning committee is available to help you design an activity, if needed. We have space for a few additional outdoor exhibitors as well. The main focus of all exhibitors will be to share information with high school students about career pathways within their organizations in a fun and informative way.

Habitat Forsyth Partnership

John 3:16 Builder Blitz

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life. – John 3:16

Habitat for Humanity of Forsyth County is honored to receive a gift designated for a John 3:16 Build. This contribution is the foundation of our Spring John 3:16 Blitz build which will kick off in the Bowen Park community April 3-8, 2017. The John 3:16 Build purpose is to bring together individuals and churches to raise funds and build Habitat homes around the message of John 3:16. We invite congregations and organizations to join us in this historical build by providing volunteers and a financial contribution of any level. By partnering with the Home Builders Association of Winston-Salem our goal is to have one home completed and ready for dedication and have three houses completely “dried in” at week’s end.

In September, the PWB met in my showroom at Murray Supply Company.
It was nice to have an offsite meeting, in a big open space, while enjoying delicious pizza and wings from 66 Pizzeria.

The first order of business was about the upcoming Habitat Women’s Work Series classes being held in September.  Here is the list of volunteers and classes that will be held this month:

September 15th-Thursday- 6-7:30pm- Energy Efficiency– Cathy & Miranda

September 24th– Saturday- 9-10:30am– Sissy

September 29th– Thursday- 6-7:30pm- Caulking Tips- Debbie & Tracy

Habitat is throwing a closing reception on December 15th from 6pm-7:30pm for the Women’s Work Series participants and the coaches. If you want to attend, just click on the link below to register. Make sure you signify that you are a “coach” somewhere on the form.

The second topic of conversation, was about picking officers for our PWB group for next year.  I am very happy to announce the following people will be leading our great group next year:

President- Miranda Kempton

Vice-President- Jennifer Sapp

Secretary- Jody Welch

Treasurer- Judy Redding

Congratulations to all, and I know you are going to do a fabulous job!!

Also, at our September meeting, we collected items from a “Family Wish List” that Debbie Fletcher got for us from the Ronald McDonald House.  We were able to fill up almost three boxes worth of items needed for the families staying at the house. I was overwhelmed by the amount of items all the ladies brought in for donation. Thank you all for your support. A special “thank you” goes to Debbie for getting that list for us, and for taking all the material up to the Ronald McDonald House.

Our next meeting will be on October 4th, at Sheila Wilson’s house for our annual Build Pac Poker night.  Hope to see everyone there!!
