Maintenance Updates

Winter 2012

Written by Larry Covington   

The Maintenance Staff at Camp Hanover includes the Site Manager, Larry Covington, and Maintenance Assistant, Jim Marston. Both of these positions are part-time and these employees work with a number of volunteers to accomplish the formidable task of maintaining the buildings and grounds at our Camp.

One of the current projects that our staff and volunteers are working on is upgrades to existing bathrooms. The upgrades to the Sr. Pool bathrooms include ceramic floor tile, painting, light fixtures, mirrors, and doors. Our thanks go to volunteers from Fairfield Presbyterian Church who contributed both time and money to make this upgrade possible. Below are photos of this recent upgrade.

Additional bathroom upgrades planned to be completed before the next camping season includes both the Boy’s and Girl’s Winger Bathhouse. Although the staff is planning to provide much of the labor required, we are currently looking for donations of volunteer time and money to complete this project. Upgrades to the Knoxwood and Adventure Camp bathrooms are also planned and we would welcome assistance on these projects as well.

We are also pleased to announce the completion of upgrades to both porches of Knoxwood Lodge. Through donations of volunteer time and funds from Three Chopt Presbyterian Church and Susan Cady (a longtime friend of Camp Hanover) the Knoxwood porches now are equipped with ceiling fans, rebuilt light fixtures, new receptacles and fresh stain. With the recent addition of heaters to these porches, these fans will help to more evenly distribute the heat and also provide a cooling breeze in the summer. The rebuild of the light fixtures included replacing the aging wiring & sockets, painting the fixtures and installing compact fluorescent bulbs. This lighting upgrade not only increases the available lighting on these porches but it reduces the cost of electricity for lighting!
