Students hit the nail on the head, actually, quite a few nail heads, during Shed Works 2003 Saturday, April 26. The event was a project for Habitat for Humanity - to build "four sheds in four hours, no sweat." It took a little longer than four hours, but the sheds were complete by the end of the day, and approximately 50 members of Panhellenic Council called it a job well done.

The sheds are a much-needed addition to local Habitat homes that traditionally don't have garages. "Homeowners need a place to store lawn care equipment and kids bicycles," said Habitat coordinator Joseph Preville.

A total of $2,175 was donated by Kettering Greek Letter organizations. Participating fraternities and sororities included: Pi TauSigma, Lambda Chi Alpha, Delta Tau Delta, Sigma Chi, Sigma Nu, Beta Theta Pi, Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI), Alpha Gamma Delta, Beta Sigma Phi, and Alpha Sigma Alpha. Coca Cola donated soda and bottled water for the hammer swingers.
