Habitat for Humanity Fresno County will hold a dedication ceremony on Saturday to celebrate the completion of two new homes for the Vang Her and Boonma Vang families of Fresno.

Her and Vang were neighbors in the Wat Tham Krabok refugee camp in Thailand before both resettled in Fresno separately in 2004.

They were reunited last summer when both families learned that they would once again be neighbors in the Little Long Cheng subdivision in southeast Fresno.

The dedication ceremony starts at 1 p.m. at East Garrett and Willow avenues.
