The 2010 55th Anniversary $10,550 Giveaway Winner
What would you do with $10,000 in home improvement products from Joyce Factory Direct? Joanne Grundke who entered our 2010 Giveaway at the 2009 Fabulous Food Show, although initially in disbelief that she had really won, knew exactly what she would do.
Joanne and her husband Russell Grundke run Hiram House Camp in Chagrin Falls. Located on 172 acres of pristine land, simply put, the mission of Hiram House is to enrich the lives of children through camping. Hiram House Camp has been in existence since 1896, being one of the oldest camps in the country. Throughout its many years Hiram House Camp has helped thousands of area youth build character and self esteem and continues to play a vital role in helping prepare our youth to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow. The decades of use of the facilities by active youth has taken its toll, so the winnings for Joanne and Hiram House Camp came at a perfect time.
The decision was made to replace badly needed windows at Taylor Hall , a main hub of the camp. The windows were literally falling apart - unable to open or close all the way, grids missing and missing screens. This project would definitely make a huge impact on the camp and functionality of the building.
The results are amazing! The new windows are now in and look spectacular. The completion of this project of replacement windows helped to complete phase one of the Master Plan to transform Taylor Hall into a multi-functioning Activity Center. Taylor Hall is open and now available to rent for both private or community functions. Phase two of the Master Plan looks to create break out meeting spaces and eventually an interactive Nature Center.
