KITCHEN UPDATE—June 4, 2018
The second stage of the kitchen project began June 4, 2018. This phase
will include the complete removal of the south wall cabinets, drawers, and
sinks and will be replaced with:
ONE STAINLESS STEEL SINK,
FULL STAINLESS STEEL COUNTERTOP
NEW WOOD CABINETS ABOVE COUNTER TO THE WEST PANTRY WALL
NEW WOOD LOWER CABINETS FROM EAST WALL TO UNDER SINK
6 NEW WOOD DRAWERS UNDER COUNTER FROM SINK TO WEST
PANTRY WALL
ONE NEW SMALL CABINET BETWEEN LOWER CUPBOARDS AND
DRAWERS TO STORE OVEN/ COOLING RACKS
REMAINING ORANGE FORMICA TO BE REPLACED WITH NEW
FORMICA EXCEPT IN DISH PANTRY
THE SMALL SHELF/COUNTER IN DISH PANTRY WILL BE PAINTED
RATHER THAN REPLACED
We have sufficient money in the kitchen fund to pay for the above items
listed. The kitchen drain has been fixed so the only remaining part left
for this kitchen remodel will be to replace the flooring. I have not yet
checked out the many options for the flooring but will plan to do so in the
near future.
We so much appreciate all your donations thus far to update the kitchen
and the end is certainly in sight. As you see from the update, we still
need donations for the flooring and will appreciate any and all amounts.

Thank you!!!
 
 
A Little Extra
You may notice a box outside the sanctuary. This is for a collection
of a little extra or perhaps your pocket change. This money
will be donated to a local project which helps local people. The
group to receive the funds will be posted with the box and will
change periodically. Please give us your suggestions of groups
to receive this “little extra”. If you have questions, please contact
me at jskorte@sutv.com or 620-326-1843 (cell).
