Bethany Lutheran Daycare of McCallsburg was the scene of a demolition crew on the evening of Friday, April 12. Ten volunteers from Bethany Lutheran Church in McCallsburg tore up the tile flooring in three classrooms of the daycare center.

From the youngest, 5-year-old Kade Hendrick, to the oldest, Ken Meimann, everyone worked hard to prepare the rooms for laying new vinyl flooring.

New flooring was needed as the old tiles were peeling up and beginning to present a safety hazard. The staff is now satisfied that the new flooring will be easier to clean and safer for active small children.

The flooring and its installation were paid for by a grant awarded to the Bethany Lutheran Daycare by the Story County Community Foundation. Funding for the community grants is provided by the State of Iowa’s County Endowment Fund and local donors.
