On May 12, 2021 San Mateo County moved to Tier 4 (Yellow). This designation allows many indoor businesses and activities to reopen or expand. County website gave a summary of requirements pertaining to face coverings for fully vaccinated persons, unvaccinated persons, and indoor settings.
On this good news and updated guidelines, one of the first things members of San Carlos Lions Club, Boys Scouts Troop 321 and Cub Scouts Pack 65 did was to activate a painting project in the Community United Church of Christ’s Mahany Hall kitchen. Mahany Hall is where all three groups, as well as other community non-profit groups, hold many of their meetings and fundraisers.
The Mahany Hall kitchen project began in the Fall of 2019. By Feb. 2020 extensive electrical, plumbing, HVAC, carpentry work, changing out a commercial gas stove/oven to two more efficient and energy saving electric residential stoves, and a couple of kitchen appliance replacements were done. The remaining task was to paint the walls and floor of the kitchen, this to be done by the Scouts. Covid-19 shut-down came in the middle of March 2020 so the remaining task could not begin. Follwing the
May 12, 2021 announcement of the Tier 4 designation, leaders of the Lions and Scouts quickly put together a work plan and recruited member volunteers. Work began the week of May 14, 2021 and will be completed Thursday June 3, 2021.
Here to acknowledge the quick responses from those who gave of their time, energy and heart:
- San Carlos Lions: Scot Marsters, Tim King, Grant DuBois, Greg Klein
- Troop 321: Scoutmaster Casey Inman; Committee Chair Mark Maxwell
- Pack 65: Cubmaster Adrian Jubb; Committee Chair Alison Lansing
- And all the Scouts and parents who worked so hard, we thank you!
By this weekend June 5, 2021, the floor will be well dried, items on the counter tops will be put away and our community will be able to enjoy our wonderful commercial size kitchen!
The pictures you see below are just a sampling. Individual Scouts and their families will be acknowledged in a future gathering and other posting.
