Squire travels to Vietnam

SV-WaiteNorth Kent Service Center Director Sandy Waite and her husband traveled to Vietnam in November with a group from Kent County Habitat for Humanity for two weeks.  They were part of the Habitat for Humanity International—Mekong Build—near Hanoi.  “My husband and I built homes with Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter,” Waite said.  “We built a total 32 homes while we where there.  We then traveled for a week in Northern Vietnam.” Pictured is Waite and her husband George in Bac Ha Vietnam’s open air market proudly displaying their Rockford Squire paper surrounded by the Flower H’mong ethnic minority tribe.  “It was a life changing experience,” Waite said. “It was our first Habitat build but not our last build.”
