Megs and the Foodways Makeover

February 7th, 2010 by admin

So there have been some changes (and major improvements) to the Colonial Foodways kitchen and store room. I have installed a new floor in the store room which was desperately needed.. That painted particle board was just awful. I have also repainted the door (purple), trim (green), and one part of the ceiling in the kitchen to give the room a whole new cheerful and spunky feel (if I do say so). So I hope everyone will enjoy the new Colonial Foodways area. Here are some pictures from my progress over the past few weeks.

    What you might not notice in the sky’s the limit are the three geese and the happy tree. It’s amaazing what a coat of paint (and more then a little talent and imagination)can do to spruce up the place. I love the new look! Thank you Megan.

    I love what Megan has done for you all! She is a true artist at heart and she has a very giving heart. You did a great job honey and we’re very proud of you! Can’t wait to see you in June and meet all your new friends!

    I didn’t mention that all the painting and flooring went on around our regularly scheduled winter programing: foodways prep for the workshops for the Education Department, prep for the February vacation apple tart workshops,inventory and assessments for the English Village and Mayflower II foodways progams and the Friday Soup Kitchen.
