The kitchen and pantry cleaned and painted top to bottom.
Dishwasher cleaned and looks brand new.
The girls bathroom has been painted and looks wonderful  We did install an additional paper towel holder on the sink base.  This makes it handicap accessible.  We also moved the storage cabinet to a different wall making it wide enough for a wheel chair to enter the girls bathroom.
The craft room has been organized.
The griddle looks brand new.
Salad bar looks brand new!
Counters washed in the dining hall.

Thank you all for the great work!!!

Kum-Ba-Ya Alternate Birthday List
Expanding our boundaries beyond Summer Youth Events

It takes more than summer youth events to make ends meet. Kum-Ba-Ya is a beautiful holy ground that we are reaching out to other groups to use year round. In order to make this happen, we need your help with some larger ticket items. If someone on your Christmas (or Birthday) shopping list really can’t think of a thing they need, consider sending a gift to KBY. We will send them an appropriate card acknowledging your gift in honor of their birthday or Christmas gift. If you have a person you would love to honor or to remember with a special donation give us a call.  Click here for the list. Alternate Birthday Gift List
