(WDEF) The Chattanooga Rotary Club celebrates its Centennial by giving back.
      Rotary Club members are sponsoring and helping to build a house with Habitat for Humanity.
      The home at 1125 East 14th Street will be a different design.
      It's been completely designed by an architect who happens to be a member of the Rotary Club.
      Once its completed, the house will be home to Darfur refugee Mokhtar Abo.
      He and the Rotarians will also be working to build the house on East 14th Street.
      Rowena Belcher was out working on the home Friday.  She said, "We're trying to recruit teams of other Rotarians to compete one another and its very nice for this club because we have not really done a big project before per se."
     They have 12 weeks to complete the house.
     The Rotary Club plans to hold its October meeting at the finished house site on East 14th Street.
