Carolyn Spencer, co-president of the Neighbors and Newcomers Club of Cumberland County, left, is shown presenting a check to Melinda Weigle, right. The money donated will be used toward funding for a future Habitat home for a county resident. Weigle became involved with the program in 1998 as the seventh Habitat homeowner in Cumberland County, becoming an employee soon after and now is the executive director of Cumberland County Habitat for Humanity. Her success is indicative of the positive changes that can occur for the deserving folks to whom Habitat offers a hand-up, not a hand-out, and the ladies of the Neighbors and Newcomers Club are happy to participate in this effort.
