Kitchen Update Project
The Trustees will begin with the kitchen update project early in Dec. 2017– after the
Dec 6th Wed night dinner–with the removal of the 12-burner cooktop on the West
wall. There are short/small cupboards beneath the burners which have ‘stuff’ in
them. ANYONE wanting anything in those cupboards is asked to please take any
and all of what’s in there—you may find something that is YOURS!!
In addition to the ‘goodies’ under the burners, several ‘left’ items from misc. dinners
have been left ON those burners for someone to please claim.
At any rate, the trustees will be discarding any remaining items when they remove
the burners. The electric work will begin shortly after the removal of the burners,
which we hope will be completed before the end of Dec.
