Property Services/Visitation Parlour:
It has been a good year! Not to many major expenses, started out with hiring a great worker for the summer (Alex Poaps)
We had to buy a new bush hog, and lumber to repair decks and bleachers, pretty much everything got newly painted. We also did plumbing, and replaced one of the toilets up at the canteen, also repaired canteen roof. We burned all old wood and brush that was left up at the canteen.
We hired a worker and had him cut the trees across from the hall making it more visible. Which has been good as being we haven’t seen any vandalism since having it done.
I was asked to contact a welding company to make and install a rail for up at the funeral parlour, which has been completed!
Over all the snow plowing went well and didn’t need to many plow jobs.
