Harmony Hall kitchen receiving a makeover

Volunteers with the Gibsons Seniors Society (GSS) started kitchen renovations at Harmony Hall on Sunday, Nov. 1, removing anything not anchored in the kitchen.

“We’ll be back in business on Monday, Nov. 16,” said GSS president Judy Larson.

“We’ll have a renovated kitchen to welcome Amber Webster of Cook For You to launch our food program,” Larson said. “We’ll be providing affordable, healthy and nutritious meals for seniors.”

The Town of Gibsons gave GSS a grant of $2,843 towards the kitchen renovations. Gibsons Building Supplies donated paint and supplies.

Many volunteers worked on the project.

Harry (Woody) Woodman, age 94, painted for two full mornings.

“I got a little tired,” he said later. “So I went home and slept!”

Meals will be frozen and available for purchase Tuesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Cost per meal is $7.50, but GSS members can buy five meals for $35. Non-members will be able to order meals, but at a slightly higher cost.

“Many seniors and people in our community need help with meals, especially during a pandemic,” said Larson.

“We provide meals at cost and plan on having frozen soups available soon. We are providing a service, not making a profit.”

Harmony Hall was built by volunteers in 1974 and is still maintained by volunteers.
