Wilde Hall Kitchen Project

Modified on: June 4, 2020

UPDATE – June 2020

Our project to build a commercial-style kitchen in Wilde Hall (Lower Level) was kicked off almost 2 years ago. Our co-General Contractors are Linda Leibel and myself (Fred Stoll). Both the level of effort and the funding required have been significantly greater than initially envisioned, particularly due to a labyrinth of applicable building codes, and existing construction that was out of compliance. Various planning steps have required long periods of waiting. However the project remains alive, and considerable progress has been made. In March, the Board voted to suspend further expenditures on the kitchen in the face of COVID 19 uncertainty. However, a generous gift to the Wilde Hall Fund in April has allowed major work to continue.
