NEWS FROM MAY 2017
The Light House Café has been a busy place with everyone still enjoying our newly remodeled dining room! The volunteers are thankful and enjoying our new walk-in freezer and refrigerator space. We cannot even begin to tell how much of a difference our new laundry room and restroom makes for us! With all of the renovations, we are operating much more efficient!
A group of volunteers from the Church of the Latter Day Saints came for their yearly day of service and performed a deep cleaning of our kitchen and dining room! They also helped us organize our dry storage space. We are very thankful for their continued service to the LHC. Then on May 24th, we were visited by Bank of America representatives, Stephanie Glavin and Nikki Morley who presented us with a donation of $7,500!! We are incredibly blessed by their ongoing support of our ministry.
On May 17th, Ms. Jan Loesch started a Bible Study with LHC patrons that wanted to participate. She had six people join her! Pastor Steve Nolin from the Community United Methodist Church is also helping in a supportive role with this new endeavor. We have great hopes that this group will grow and amazing things will come of their collaborative efforts!
During the last week of May, many people have left the Western Glades area to relocate to Georgia as they follow the seasonal corn harvesting. We pray for their success and safe return next season!
Moving onto June, we are planning to continue our remodeling project as we move to the kitchen renovations. Our plans include: a new window, to relocate and replace the air handler for the kitchen air-conditioner, update all electrical and plumbing, add new lighting, move the hand sink to a better location, add new flooring, new stoves, and new ovens. All of these changes are much needed and will allow us to serve our current patrons much more effectively, as well as more people in need.
We would love for you to come visit us and see the exciting new renovations! If you or someone you know would like to volunteer or visit, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 561-993-7020.
