Special Announcements

Gwinwood is moving into a full year-round retreat center, with the hopes of continual year-round use. This has been part of our long-term goals and we are taking advantage of the empty grounds to do some of the work when possible.

Westwood is very close with only some minor updates.  We will be
removing the single beds from the sleeping room leaving the double bed,
 a small dresser and some “homey” touches.  We would like to add a sink in each room, however, that is part of a longer plan.

 Currently, we are in the process of renovating the Chalet to become a
small retreat center.  This renovation started before the pandemic, so the funds were already in place. There will be 4 private bedrooms, a
living room, kitchen/dining room, two bathrooms, an open loft and laundry.  We are very close to finishing as the flooring is now being put in.

 Our next project will be the renovations of 2 of our original cabins for individual retreats (similar to our director’s cabin).  Eventually, we will be converting our cabins into four individual retreat sleeping
rooms with drop-down bunk beds for camper use during the summers.

I’m going to cast the net wide as resources often come just by asking.
