Over the past 5 decades, the Kenmore Community Club's hall has seen a lot of dancing, weddings, dinners, birthdays and other events. As a result the hardwood floor has seen a lot of wear and tear.
Last year the company that had been doing annual maintenance on the floor informed the board that the floor had reached its limit, it could no longer be sanded and refinished. Over the past few months the board has been exploring replacing the flooring as its next big rehabilitation project. With bids in the $25,000 range for the project the board has decided it will pursue grant funding to cover some the costs.
The club successfully obtained funding from King County's 4Culture Foundation to rehabilitate the kitchen, lighting and roofing.
Should the grant application be successful, the board hopes to be able to replace the floor later this year.
