Transformations: Kirkwood IV Updated

A handful of talented volunteers and staff members have transformed Kirkwood IV, an aging screen pavilion, into a comfortable, indoor meeting space now available for year-round usage by guests visiting Camp Hanover. Spearheading the effort to revitalize Kirkwood IV gave Camp Hanover Maintenance Assistant, Jim Marston, an opportunity to showcase his talents for carpentry. Along the way, Jim was able to creatively repurpose discarded cabinetry and lumber scavenged from the recent renovations to the Executive Director’s residence for new use in the updated building.

The newly insulated building now features new LP gas heat to keep you warm and toasty on blustery winter days. New ceiling fans and removable windows keep the air moving when temperatures rise in the summer months. Thanks to the donation of materials, the costs to update the building were kept low, and allowed for the additional lighting to brighten up the space, and the construction of a small kitchen area with sink, microwave and refrigerator.
