An unprecedented 3 consecutive cancellations of the Dinner Bell are due to kitchen remodeling delays. A larger capacity Vent-A-Hood was installed to deal with excessive kitchen heat. Electrical, plumbing and other systems are often more complicated in older buildings. Several groups that use the First United Methodist Church facilities have been shifted to other parts of the complex, but the Dinner Bell simply could not be accommodated. FUMC is confident that everything will be back to normal for the January 11th, 2017 Dinner Bell.
