2014 POST: HALL FLOOR SHINY AND NEW
Many thanks again to Darren and Phyllis Kosanke, who sanded and refinished the wood floor over the Christmas break, in time for their daughter’s wedding reception on January 4th. They did a fantastic job, and we cannot thank them enough for volunteering to do this on top of the other update work previously. Thank you, Darren and Phyllis!
HALL UPDATE COMPLETED
After three long weeks, we have completed the interior update of the Hall’s kitchen and bathrooms, and it turned out great! We now have a commercial stainless kitchen sink, modern toilets and sinks, new paint, new flooring and more! We couldn’t have done it without the tireless support of those that volunteered, and the various businesses that donated products and services. Here are the businesses that made this possible – if you can, let them know that you appreciate their support of our community hall.
