A crowd of around 40 people gathered Sunday afternoon for a rededication ceremony at 419 Herriman Street in Chillicothe, during which the Garrett and Susan Barron family received the keys to their new home. The four-bedroom home was built in 2002 and recently became available for a new Habitat family.

Newest Habitat Family Gratefully Settles Into Home
When Susan Barron woke up yesterday (Monday) morning in her family's new home, she got up, went to her kitchen table and spent the next few minutes in prayer. "I just thanked God," Barron recalled today (Tuesday), adding, "I just couldn't believe that this was our new home."

Just a day earlier, the Susan and Garrett Barron family received the keys to their new home at 419 Herriman Street during a rededication ceremony hosted by members of the Chillicothe Area Habitat for Humanity. That night, they moved into their new home and by this (Tuesday) morning, the only moving tasks left to do involved hanging decorations on the wall. "Everybody just thinks (the home) is great," Susan said.

The couple, along with their four children, Sarah, 12, Lewis, 11, Christian, 10 and Isaiah, 8, had been living on St. Louis Street in a Chillicothe Housing Authority apartment. The apartment was close to the same size as the home at 419 Herriman, "But it wasn't ours," Susan said. So, in June, the Barrons applied (for a second time) to be a Habitat family and Susan said that the entire family was "shocked" to find out that they had been chosen about a month ago after a four-bedroom Habitat home built in 2002 became available.

"We've been overjoyed since we received the news that our family was chosen," Susan told the crowd Sunday, adding, "I want to thank all of you for giving us the opportunity to own this home. We couldn't be happier."

Before the family moved in Habitat members "refreshed" the home by adding a new coat of paint to the walls, according to Habitat president Lois Turner, who also spoke during the rededication ceremony.
