The Prince Edward County Construction Association helped Habitat for Humanity with its future building projects by raising $2,000 at a golf tournament Wednesday at the Picton Golf and Country Club.
More than 120 golfers and guests enjoyed a day on the 18-hole course – some vying for prizes, others just for fun and laughs. The $2,500 hole-in-one prize donated by Picton Home Hardware was not won this year, but Rob Richmond earned closest to the pin; Kathy Pliwischkies the ladies longest drive, and John Henry MacDonald, the men’s longest drive.
The tournament’s overall winners, are John Henry MacDonald (front), Chris Perry, Jesse Morkis and Mike Goodman.

Prince Edward-Hastings Habitat for Humanity is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity Canada, a non-profit, ecumenical Christian housing organization. Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with people in need to build and renovate decent, affordable housing.

Prince Edward-Hastings HFH, established in 1995, has build eight homes to date. The latest four were completed in early 2005, two in Belleville and two in Picton. Two Chapters were formed, one in Trenton (Quinte West) in 2002, and one in Prince Edward County in 2003. The Trenton Chapter has built one home and the Prince Edward Chapter, two.

A first for the Prince Edward Hastings affiliate and for Habitat Canada, the 2009 project featured a straw bale construction design, on Barker Street, Picton. Exterior walls were insulated with locally cut and baled straw to provide exceptional insulation value to the home. Organized and built by the folks at Bloomfield’s Bethany Christian Reformed Church with help from Camel’s Back Straw Bale Construction (, the Snider family moved into their spacious new home in time for Christmas.
The 2010 project is yet to be announced.
