Sharon Delay will soon be moving from a rural Crawfordsville home to her new home in Mt. Pleasant.

Delay is the 21st partner of the Henry County Habitat for Humanity and a dedication ceremony was hosted Sunday at Calvary Baptist Church.

Her new house is located on the 500 block of North Lee Street in Mt. Pleasant.

“I am overwhelmed, excited and happy,” she said, after receiving the keys from Dan Spray, president of the county Habitat chapter.

Delay, who works at the Best Western in Mt. Pleasant, said she hopes to move into her new house with her two granddaughters, Madison, 10, and Sara, 6, by the end of February.

“I have lots to do before I can move,” she noted, referring to packing from her current home.

Bryce Creager was the building manager for the 1,100 square-foot house.

The house on North Lee was the second finished by Habitat in 2012 (the other was in Wayland) and two more in Mt. Pleasant are on the drawing board for 2013, Spray said.

Henry County Habitat built its first house in 1997.
