Current Kitchen Project News

Hood, Lights, Cabinets, Oh My!

Our contractors are moving fast these days, so don’t blink, or you will miss seeing the progress. We now have lots of ceiling lights that brighten the kitchen, along with the white primer on all the walls. Look up, and you can also get a peek at the three new skylights.


The new fire suppression hood is up with its control cabinet located just south of the ovens (one of those pesky change orders the committee has had to deal with) and is awaiting our new induction stovetops. It may not look like much, but this is a huge step forward, given all the pieces that were required for its installation. There will be a wood cabinet just below the large control box than will hide the lower box and the electrical conduits.


Here (right) is a look into the storage “cubbie” area where a 6’ shelving unit will be added. All lighting fixtures are now LED (light-emitting diodes). Thanks for the input from our Sustainability Committee!

The Memorial Committee wasted no time in claiming their new storage closet in Griffin Hall! There is now plenty of room for their table covers, dishes, and silver serving pieces (images below).



Thanks to our tireless project Chair Ann Mowery for these photos.

Save the Date! A formal dedication and donor recognition program is planned for Sunday, May 7, immediately following the morning service. A delicious brunch will be available after a special dedication ceremony led by Rev. Victoria. You won’t want to miss the unveiling of the Donor Recognition installation.

Volunteer Needed. We are looking for someone(s) to compile all these Intercom updates and photos into an album for display at the May 7th celebration. Any creative cut-and-paste artistic types interested? Reach out to Mary Ellen Miller.
