Sometimes blessings come when we least expect them. Last week, Brian Van Haren, President of Van Haren Electric Inc., was our luncheon guest. As he sat in our Chapel/Dining Area he looked up and was not pleased with what he saw – our less than high efficiency lighting.
As a result, two workmen, Cal Fischer and Chris Sanders, spent three days this week installing efficient lighting. Van Haren Electric donated to Guiding Light 20 – 2×4 LED Ceiling Light Fixtures and the labor used in installing them. Now our Dining & Chapel Area is brighter and the lighting is more efficient. Cal and Chris also installed dimmer switches for all the fixtures. This energy-saving gift is truly a blessing!
We enticed Cal and Chris most of the week by offering lunches and snacks. Responding that they pack and bring a lunch every day, they were content to pass on the offerings. However, one day we won them over with cheesecake, donated by a corporate friend of Guiding Light. “It was great cheesecake,” they admitted. They added, “Everyone we have worked with here, staff and residents at Guiding Light, has been super nice and helpful by opening doors for us and even helping with clean up.”
Thank you Brian, Cal, Chris and Van Haren Electric!
