CHELAN — The Chelan Valley Housing Trust (CVHT) invites the public to attend a “S’more Affordable Homes” house burning party Nov. 16 on the corner of North Emerson Street and East Chelan Avenue when Chelan Fire and Rescue will do a controlled burn of the existing home to make way for the trust’s first five-townhome project.

“This has been a community effort all the way,” said Rachael Goldie, housing trust administrator, “from believing in our mission, to raising the funds, to purchasing this first site, to partnering with every business and individual who helped make this happen. We’re grateful for all the support and want everyone to celebrate with our ‘S’more Affordable Homes’ burn party.”
