Bob, his wife, Denise, and I came to Parkway at the same time, as we were led by the Lord in our desire to worship where truth was taught and lived. I worked alongside Denise for many years in our Sunday School Department and was impressed with Bob’s carpentry skills and willingness to devote a lot of time and energy to building props. I don’t remember the exact number, but Bob created perhaps 8 to 10 (maybe Denise knows the number) very sturdy, folding room dividers which we used to define our tables/centers, at which each teacher worked with an assigned group of K4 and K5 kids. These dividers were painted a cheerful yellow and had a cork board in the center panel. I loved decorating mine to fit our current theme or the season. They served us well for several years. Thanks, Bob, for contributing faithfully, behind the scenes, and recognizing the importance of supporting our children’s ministries with your talent.
