Heritage Heights thanks the members of our community for their support in this public health crisis.  We recognize and are very grateful for your donations of supplies like thermometers, hand sanitizers, cleaning products, and hand soap.  With the run on the supply chain, our vendors have been...
Editors Note: The Chelan Habitat store is closed due to the COVID19 virus. Volunteer Bruce Willett is building a drop-off box outside the building that can be used to put your receipts in. When that is finished we will post that info.  Lake Chelan Valley Habitat for Humanity is extremely pleased...

The Washington legislature is pushing CSE as the latest and greatest mandated sex education program for public school children from kindergarten to 12th grade. Mutual masturbation to condom and oral dam use will be taught...
