Kitchen Ministry Annual Report January 2009


2008-My budget was swelled this year because we bought the two steel cabinets for Kitchen use. It's hard to plan a budget at this time because we are still growing, changing and having different events each year. But, when I shop, I am always looking for good buys, as well as convenience. We received a new toaster, a new small coffee maker, new aprons, baskets and decorations as donations and I appreciate those people inquiring to me first.

I am also delighted that some good soul replaced many of our old HEAVY wooden tables with 8 ft. white plastic tables that I had wanted. We will fold the old ones that we don't need and set them nearby for the next big event. These new tables make clean up easier and more efficient for re-straightening and are much easier on the floor. We still need about eight more.

I continue to throw out ripped or overly rusted soft chairs. I would like to replace them with a cushioned folding card chair. We are keeping the big wooden table, but have gotten rid of the chairs. They are splitting, overly HEAVY, and rough on the floor.

I continue to stock all of the restrooms, since the maids do not always.

I am painting the back of the kitchen sink, putting up a splash guard and re-hanging the icon. I wipe down the refrigerator about every 2 months. Most weeks I try to stock for the upcoming hostesses so they don't have to hunt. I apologize if I miss your week though.

I try to go through the refrigerator and cupboards for expiration dates. I would encourage planners of each event to try to use up what we presently have, if possible.

One of my goals for 2009 is to go as green as possible, using more paper products than styrofoam when we can, and if the price is comparable. I will also pay more attention to the cleaning products as well. I don't think St. Luke abuses the environment though, and I will be judicious.

Thank you for allowing me the chance to do this ministry. I enjoy it.
