Last month our talented maintenance crew led by Bruce Vander Meulen and Doug Walker made short work of a huge project and saved the Firs many thousand dollars in the process. They replace a very old water main that came off Geneva St. and headed east through the length of the Retreat Center. They replaced the pipe and each of its connecting lines that serviced cabins and lodge and meeting rooms scattered throughout the grounds. They did this at a fraction of the contracted price. It’s a project that will never see the light of day but is so very important to our functioning here at this site.
