The Byrd Retreat Center is in the process of getting a long overdue facelift!
Phase I was new flooring and painting, and has been completed. We have also been replacing HVAC units in the bedrooms as they wear out. A special thanks goes to Steve Church of Church's Carpet in Hickory, NC for his assistance with this project.
Phase II will be replacing the bedroom furnishings. We had planned to use a company that specialized in high end hotel liquidations, which would have enabled us to furnish the rooms at a bargin cost. Unfortunately, hotels have slowed renovations due to the slow economy and we will not be able to get the furniture this way. So, it looks as if we will be running into more expense than we orignially thought.
If you, or your church, would like to be part of this project, we have five bedrooms left that can be sponsored in honor/memory of someone at $1,000 each. Call the camp at 828-437-8788 or e-mail Mischia at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
