Twelve students and staff members from Prospect High School in Mount Prospect, took a break from their usual summer activities and traveled to Washington County, Wis. to help Habitat for Humanity with construction of a new duplex for two needy families in West Bend.

The students are members of the school's Service Club, which participates in volunteer service projects in the community. This was the 15th summer trip for the club, which previously assisted Habitat affiliates in Wisconsin including Two Rivers, Milwaukee, Oshkosh, and Stevens Point, among others.

The group stayed at Holy Angels Church, thanks to the hospitality of Deacon Mark Jansen. Washington County Habitat for Humanity volunteer coordinator Julia Benson facilitated the trip for the group, as she set up the work schedule, organized lunches and dinners and provided the group with some historical perspective on Habitat for Humanity.

The group spent three days working on the two houses under construction. Under the direction of project supervisor Tony Koebel, the group installed drywall and exterior siding, and built interior walls and a set of stairs.

The group also found time to have some fun. Tuesday night they went go-karting at Stocky's and finished the evening with frozen custard at Toucan's.

On Wednesday the group visited the summer home of Habitat executive director, Russ Wanta, where they rode wave runners in Lake Michigan and ate a fine Mexican-style dinner. Thursday night they attended the Ozaukee County Fair in Cedarburg.

The students in the group included seniors-to-be Lisa Borawski, Madalyn Bryant, Margaret Filipic, Jennifer Mori, Amy Mosley, Mimi Norton, Mark Sandel, Matt Smetana, and John Sullivan.

The three staff members on the trip were service learning coordinator Dave Jacobson, guidance counselor Rachel Brill, and special education teacher Rebecca Boorman.
