Habitat family plans mortgage burning

The Vilia Barger family and Habitat for Humanity of Jackson County invite the public to attend a mortgage burning at 2 p.m. Sunday at Cornerstone Community Church, 1088 Sarasota Drive, Seymour.

The family is the third partner family to have paid off their mortgage since Habitat for Humanity of Jackson County started building homes for low-income families in 1992.

Barger signed her mortgage Oct. 3, 2001, and made her last payment in March, according to a news release from Phyllis Nantz, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Jackson County.
