In December, the local Habitat for Humanity celebrated its 59th dedication ceremony for the Ruckowski family’s new home in Crestview. Barbara Harrison (right), outreach chair for the Sand Dunes Chapter of the Embroiderers’ Guild of America, presented the family with a welcome sampler stitched by Kimberly Mortimer and framed by Cynthia Hardesty, both chapter members. Sand Dunes meets on the second and fourth Sunday afternoons from 1:30 to 4:30 at the Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church in Niceville.
