Weekly Portraits of Calvary Life
Calvary has dreamed of a new dining hall for years now. On Monday, January 8, 2018, those dreams came to fruition!
On September 8, 2016, Calvary acquired the building which was formerly Turner’s German-American Hall. It is located just south of Calvary’s softball field near Eagle’s Landing Golf Course. The main goal was to remodel the space and move the dining hall to this new location.
Joe’s Kitchen Opens for Business
While there are still a few tasks to accomplish before the remodeling project can be called “complete,” we were able to pass inspections and receive permission to begin serving meals when the students returned to campus for the new semester. On Wednesday, we had Chapel in the new dining hall and took time to praise and thank God for this building. Randy Grimm announced that the kitchen will be named “Joe’s Kitchen” in honor of Joe Dapra, who is faithfully serving as Director of Food Services for the twentieth school year. We look forward to many more chocolate chip cookies, eggs made to order, and Taco Tuesdays in this new facility!
You Can Help
Besides the modern kitchen and spacious eating area, we are also excited about the potential for hosting special events in this building. This year’s Alumni Phone-a-thon will fund the purchase of a sound system, multimedia screen, and projector to be used at these events.
