May 01, 2012 | Angella Smith

Lewis County Adventist School recently welcomed families, church constituency and the community to attend an open house and tour the new facility in Chehalis, Wash.

The event on Feb. 26 was well-attended by families of students, church members, pastors, school board members, building committee members, contractors, Lewis County commissioners, a Centralia (Wash.) city councilman and families interested in enrolling their children.

Visitors were welcomed by Dan Baker, principal, and Karen Kugel, school board chairwoman, and were treated to a video showing the progress of construction, from the demolition of the old school to the completed new facility. The school moved to its new facility in October 2011.

Lewis County commissioners Ron Averill and Bill Schulte spoke words of praise and support for the positive influence the school is to the community in its commitment to quality Christian education and values.

Daughters of the American Revolution representatives Norma Rommel and Sharon Miller joined Kimberly Blake Pincheira, U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell's Southwest Washington director, to present to the school a flag flown over the U.S. Capitol.

Refreshments were served by school board members, and visitors were invited to tour the facility. Staff, parents and church members served as tour guides for guests, offering personal reflections of the trials and answers to prayer that were experienced through the construction process and fundraising efforts.
