A recent power surge associated with a storm caused minor damage to the dishwasher, thermostats and emergency lights at Agape House of Vandalia. Each of these items is being checked and repaired. As a result of this problem, the board of directors, in its July 16 meeting, decided to make flashlights available in each guest room.
In other business, the manager reported 79 guests, including 17 children, had stayed at the house in June. Nicole Cropp, of Curryville, assisted by Alberta Cropp, stayed at the house during the manager’s vacation recently. Further assistance was given by Veanna Snodgrass and her family.
Prior to the meeting, the quarterly inspection of the premises was completed. Aside from a few minor issues, the house was found in excellent condition. Special commendation was made on the recent addition of flowers and yard ornaments at the rear entrance.
The next meeting will be held August 20 at 4 p.m. at the house.
In attendance were Anne Barnes, A. Cropp, Carlene Galloway, Karen Holbrook, Sterling Holbrook, Kay Robnett and V. Snodgrass.
