Kitchen Renovation

With high hopes, this will be the last fundraiser we will need for this
kitchen remodel effort as the end is in sight.
 
HOWEVER, FUNDS ARE STILL NEEDED AS
THE LAST PHASE WILL SOON BE
COMPLETED: PAINTING AND NEW FLOORING!!
 
I want to again thank all of you who have so generously
donated to this cause and hope all will enjoy using our ‘newly remodeled’
kitchen. And if you won’t be ‘using’ it, we hope you will enjoy looking
at it. Many items in the kitchen have found a new home; the utensils
more easily located with the drawer dividers; and the linens given
more space to hopefully keep more organized. We’re still in the process
of organizing once the painting is done and things find perhaps a
new home. We request that you please return items where you will
now find them.
