A big thank you to those of you have willingly and generously donated to help update the
church kitchen. The project is progressing nicely with the completion of the electric upgrades,
the removal of the old 12 burner cooktop, and the installation of the 4 new appliances:
2 convection ovens, a 4-burner cooktop, and a 15” griddle. These are all functioning
and ready for use. The addition of the metal pole in the island by the sinks ‘houses’
the wiring for all the additional outlets now available under the island counter. This will
greatly enhance serving the double lines for large dinners/banquets.
Still remaining to be done: extend the counter on the south wall to the pantry, remove the 3
sinks on the south wall and replace with ONE sink, add additional drawers/cupboards on
the south wall to extend to the pantry, replace all countertops, and, lastly, replace the flooring
in the kitchen. Once this south wall is completed as planned, we will be able to cook
with at least 3 roasters on that countertop in addition to the 2
microwave ovens currently there.
We will continue to ‘fundraise’ for this project and money is still needed. In addition to a
few Wed night dinners, we will perhaps sell the trash bags again in the spring. Any and all
donations are gratefully accepted and appreciated.
Additional comments 3/28/2018:
The new cabinets for the south wall are expected to arrive around April 4th. Money is now
available to complete the south wall as described above. However, money is still needed/
requested for this total kitchen project. We need additional monies for completing the
countertops, and the new flooring. The end is in sight—–and much thanks to all of you
have supported this project with your donations.
