Christmas Bazaarbazaar7bazaar5bazaar6

On November 25, we held our Annual Christmas Bazaar. Whether behind a table or out serving in the tea room, smiles were seen and laughter heard by all.

The cold and wet weather didn’t keep people from coming in. We would like to thank all those who came out and supported White Oaks, we hope to see you again next year.

Servery Enhancement

The cabinet doors are now installed. The ceiling has been put in. The fridge and one of two freezers are in place. Not much longer now……

The cabinets are getting installed!! The counter-top is going in!!

The cabinets are being built. The floor is going down. The walls have been painted. Lots of progress this week!!

Our volunteers have been hard at work! Getting our electrical up and running, putting in the door leading into the pantry area, and of course, taping and muding, muding and taping.

Filling the holes in the block wall. We want the cabinets sitting perfectly, without the wall looking like Swiss cheese.

More work getting done! Drywall on most of the walls are up now! You really get a sense of what the space will look like.

Our cupboards were delivered! Boxes upon boxes of cabinetry.

Over the past week, the guys have been busy dry-walling. It’s a tedious but necessary task, and we thank all those lending a hand in it. Seeing the dry-wall up, really gives a feeling of -almost there!-

Building the wall for the new pantry space, electrical work being done, and the new ceiling starting to be framed in.

The wall is up! Now we can visually see how much bigger the space is!! Also the window was installed. Let the natural light come into the servery space!

Things are moving along a such a quick pace!! Tiles are removed and the base plate for the new wall was installed.

One of the first things that was said that was needed in the new servery space was a window. A LARGE window!

The wall is coming down, making the servery a bigger space!

The ceiling has come down and ductwork removed.

The Demolition has begun! Our volunteers helped to remove the cabinetry and old appliances. Next step is to start to take down the block wall.
