Well done to Patrick Blankenship, Mike Blankenship, Doug Dunn, and John Gabor for deep cleaning and performing some much needed maintenance in the kitchen today. They disassembled and wirebrushed all of the oven burners and cleaned out all the grease traps and hood filters. The stove is now a veritable flame thrower! 🔥

Wor. T-Rex helped by emptying out and cleaning the refrigerators and freezers. We are fully ready to cook food again... someday!
