Last year, Wheatland tried a new project designed to help our members learn more about how to make their homes more energy efficient while at the same time assisting a local member by making improvements to their home at no cost to them. The project quickly grew legs and became what we now call our Energy Efficiency Home Makeover. We had so much fun and received such great feedback after helping last year’s project recipient, VARNA JOHNSON from Great Bend, that we knew we wanted to do another project this year.

The loss of her husband three years ago combined with her recent health problems made it difficult enough to keep up with general maintenance around her house, let alone make improvements in energy efficiency. When we called Cindy to explain the project and what we’d like to do, she was ecstatic. “I just can’t believe it,” she said. “That sounds wonderful, thank you so much.”
