“President Jimmy Carter has arrived at the build site to start the final day of the 2017 #HabitatCWP in Canada,” the tweet said. It showed the 92-year-old Plains resident smiling at hard hat-wearing volunteers and Habitat workers as he arrived.
The Carter Center released a statement early Friday that said Carter had attended the 8 a.m. morning devotional held on the building site; it made no mention of whether the devoted Habitat volunteer would be back manning his circular saw today, the fifth and final day of the 34th Habitat for Humanity Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project.
“President Carter became dehydrated the morning of Thursday, July 13, during the build. As a precaution, he was transported to St. Boniface General Hospital for rehydration,” the statement explained. “He and Mrs. Carter extend their appreciation for the many well-wishes he received worldwide.”
