Thank You JZ Knight Humanities Foundation for Our New Floors!

 A Special "Thank You to JZ Knight Humanities Foundation" & Lowe's 

Dear Seniors & Friends,

The new flooring in the dining room, rest rooms and office were installed by Ted Hanks and his wife last weekend.  They're beautiful!  They did a great job.  We couldn't be happier with the job they did and how it transforms our Senior Center.

We sent a donation letter to the JZ Knight Humanities Foundation, asking for a donation for new flooring.  Terri Stuart called us and asked for 3 bids.  We got 4 bids.  The last bid was from Ted Hanks Construction.  We were impressed with their kindness and presentation.  We got back to Terri Stuart and they reviewed the bids.  We were pleased that Ted and Nicki won the bid.  

Nicki & Ted worked with Lowe's Home Improvement to get a discount on the flooring and they donated a special Shark floor cleaning machine, so we can maintain it properly.  We had time when the Senior Center would be closed due to Christmas and New Year's, so we were able to schedule the installation during the holidays.

Many of our members helped us to empty out the dining room to get ready for the new floors.  Then they came back in to help us put everything back together.  Bruce & Trish Palmer, Wil Speight, Terri & Bill Rendahl, Dawn Kenney, Debbie Henson, George & Linda Johnson, just to name a few people. 

The JZ Knight Humanities Foundation donated the funds to paint the outside of our building and finish the upstairs a few years ago.  Their foundation has been generous and supportive of the Senior Center of Rainier.  We are grateful and appreciate their commitment to us.

P.S.  We still have work to do before we reopen.  We hoped to reopen this Wednesday.  Reopening has been postponed until Monday, January 8, 2024.  We look forward to seeing everyone then!  LJJ
