Today, November 29, is known globally as Giving Tuesday (the day after cyber Monday). Perhaps you want to be involved too in giving to a charity.
Our Dining Car Kitchen Refurbishment project will move forward because the CWHC received word from the Community Foundation Grey Bruce on October 14th that we were the recipients of a $12,000 capital grant for the renovation of the Dining Car kitchen.
The total project includes replacing the kitchen walls, ceiling, and flooring and fully equipping the kitchen with new appliances and kitchen equipment. When completed, this project will provide us with a fully fitted, fully functional, Public Health approved, Dining Car kitchen facility. Our goal is to complete this project in Spring of 2017. [update June 2017: work still in progress so it will likely be late summer / fall of 2017 before the needed work is complete.]
Our long-term financial goal is self-sustainability. The Dining Car will provide the CWHC with badly needed additional display space, a unique meeting space that can be rented out to other groups, and a source of revenue.
While the CFGB capital grant is terrific news, we still need to raise $10,000 to purchase the kitchen appliances and kitchen equipment that a “generic” kitchen requires. This is your opportunity to help us reach this goal by January 31, 2017, by making a donation to the CWHC Kitchen Kampaign.
