Newly Renovated Kitchen

During a year that we have all faced much adversity and expect there to be more it is wonderful to be able to report on something very positive. Firstly, we have a new exciting minister , Terrie Chedore, who brings us fresh energy, many talents and her deep faith to guide us on our spiritual journey (see article about Rev Terrie Chedore for more information). The second is our newly renovated main kitchen in the basement which will be a terrific asset as we prepare dinners, lunches and all types of food as we fundraise or break bread together.

For a number of years we have dreamed about enhancing our kitchen area. This was finally made possible when one of our congregants passed away. The family of Betty Cirne, a hard-working and cherished member of our congregation, designated the kitchen renovation as one of the places for memorial donations. The generosity of her family and friends allowed us to proceed with our dream.

A committee was formed and the following people oversaw the planning, made selections and put in countless hours of work - Sandra and Alfred Stakenvicius, Deb Josefowicz, Mary Rae Knapp, Henry Brouwer and Fred Lunman. We are especially indebted to Sandra and Deb for their leadership and perseverance in guiding this project to its near-completion in spite of Covid-19 and all its restrictions and holdups. We await the new countertops and when that happens we will add photos to our website.

New cabinets were ordered from Ikea and a crew of Mary Rae Knapp, Marci Bassinett, Andy and Deb Jozefowicz, Cathy and Gary Holder, Bob Greene and Sandra, Alfred and Ian Stakenvicius installed them. A huge thanks to all of them for their work and dedication. A special thanks to Andy Josefowicz who completed the installation of many drawers and doors. We all look forward to working in this beautiful, bright and modern kitchen. When Covid permits be sure to check it out when you next come to a dinner or Soup and Sandwich at Athens United Church.
