Members of the Day Crew volunteer group take a photo Thursday at a ceremony to dedicate 13 Show Me Central Habitat for Humanity homes in south Columbia. The group started building Habitat homes in 1989, and it has built about 75 percent of the 130 constructed since that time. (GK member Jim Rhodes is at the far right.)
