JANUARY 12, 2024 - Check out the LOGO (above) for the new Coleman Oaks Thrift Store and Coffee Shop. This was developed through the logo contest competition that Lake Deaton UMC had.  There were 25 entries of logos in many different forms, computer generated, formal art renderings and hand drawn examples. We are planning to use some of the entries as artwork inside the Store. All were great! This logo is the conclusion of a collaboration between these contest entries and our Thrift Store Team. We hope this logo will serve us well in the coming years.

------------------------------

On DECEMBER 15, 2023 we closed on the two pieces of property (One is 1.8 acres and the second is .4 acres) see address above.  The due diligence and the survey are completed (no surprises). We have completed our environmental survey (no problems). We know we will need to go to a septic system because there are no sewers in the area. We are looking at January for the main capital fund drive for the project. There will be a second “Joyful Junque” sale in February 2024, look for announcements. Thank you to everyone who participates in the thrift store effort!
