This week has been very busy with painting and packing. By this time next week we should be settled in our new office space. There have been a ton of people who have helped out to make all of this happen, but I want to mention a few people who have really led the way in this project:
Jake Ticknor and Jason Collins - Jake and Jason served as our unofficial project managers. They made sure that all the materials were available, recruited workers, made sure things were done right, and just generally kept a check on everything.
Mark Wilson and Chris Wellmon - Thanks to Mark and Chris we will have lights when we move in this weekend. They pulled all the wire for the new electrical circuits and made sure it was all tied in with what was already there.
John Bostic - We had several people who helped paint in the new space, but no one spent as much time painting as John. He took off of work on Tuesday and painted literally all day. He was there from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m., and then he came back on Wednesday afternoon for a few more hours to get things finished up.
Chip Patat and Tamara Whitener - Chip and Tamara have organized getting everything moved from the old space to the new location. On Saturday several of our Life Groups will begin loading trucks with boxes and office furniture thanks to Chip and Tamara's organization.
Thanks to everyone who has had a part in making this move possible. If you painted a wall, hung sheet rock, or moved a desk, your work is appreciated!
