I am happy to report that the building is being scrubbed from top to bottom. The Custodians are in the building, one at a time, working on projects that they never have time for (and they are excited about it!). Job one was to use long handled dusters and clean the tops of the pipes in all the rooms where they are exposed. Next each table has been given an intense scrubbing (and I do mean intense). All the chairs in the Sanctuary and in the rest of the building are in the process of being steam cleaned. (There is now a fresh scent everywhere!). Other tasks on their list include: painting, maintenance inside the ceilings, and more intense scrubbing.
The Custodians miss seeing you but are excited to be making the building “like new” for when you return.
