On December 19, we agreed to buy off the new senior center building–except for the kitchen. Everything else was complete, so there was no reason for Bales to stay with the building. The kitchen equipment has not arrived.
We will not get all of the kitchen equipment on our wish list from SeniorAge Area Agency on Aging, so it will be up to us to purchase a convection oven, griddle, stainless steel work table with sink and garbage disposal along with some metal shelving.
New wooden cabinets were donated to provide much needed storage space. A granite top was donated and installed on the long cabinet and a stainless steel top was donated for the small cabinet to complete these units.
Here is a list of who to thank:
8’ upper & lower + 5’ kitchen cabinets: donated by Dana’s Showcase Cabinets,
Buffalo MO Owners: Dana & Judy Higgins
8’ granite top for cabinet: donated by Creative Associates, Springfield, MO
Owner: Ryan Boatright
Granite installed by: Craig Slater
6’ laminate beverage cabinet: donated by Cabinet Concepts by Design, Springfield, MO
Owners: Matt & Shelley Wehner
5′ Stainless Steel Cabinet top donated by D & D Welding & Fabrication, Fair Grove, MO
Dennis Dukes, President
We are happy to announce that we have been okayed to receive a large grant from Greene County Senior Citizens’ Services Fund. Not counting the items mentioned above, that grant brings us within striking distance of being fully funded. When seniors are not using the building, it will be available for community events.
