Severe Nut Allergy - Please read...

Hello St. Luke's Family. Many of you know my 8 year old son, Michael. He's an acolyte and was (proud to be) Joseph in the Christmas pageant. Michael recently had a severe allergic reaction to a nut-based ingredient at a holiday party. It was very scary. I am writing to ask your help in keeping him safe at church. As with many of the kids, he bounds up the steps after Sunday School and heads right to the goodies at coffee hour. If you have contributed food to the buffet that contains any nuts, could you please label it as such? I will leave "tented" index cards near the table so you could use those to show your food contains nuts or nut-based ingredients (ex. almond extract, Nutella, etc.) Thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving this mom some peace of mind.

TO ALL WHO USE THE CHURCH DISHWASHER . . .

The dishwasher at church is a low temperature washer and does NOT have an internal water heater. The 3 chemicals used by the washer to wash, rinse and sanitize do the major work in cleaning the dishes. It uses the hot water from the hot water tank in the basement. During the week the water in the pipes gets cold because not much hot water is used and it’s a good distance from the hot water heater to the dishwasher. If you run only one rack of cups and silverware the water in the dishwasher will only be warm.

Therefore, before starting the dishwasher, run all the hot water faucets (3) in the kitchen sinks (including the faucet to the left of the dishwasher until the water is at its hottest so the cold water in the pipes is flushed through. It takes a good minute or two for the hot water to reach the kitchen from the basement hot water heater.  Charlie also turned up the hot water heater a bit today to increase the water temperature for dishwashing.

If you follow this preparation step the dishes will be washed, rinsed and sanitized with good hot water.  Please make sure you have been fully instructed before using the equipment.

Thank you,

Cathy Thayer
