Lots of repainting and redecorating will be going on this weekend at the Daylight Donut Shop owned and operated by Melody and Terry Krueger at 910 Main.
According to Melody Krueger, work will begin Saturday afternoon around 1 p.m., and the shop will be closed to the public through Monday. The shop will be open Saturday morning until 11.
“ It will be quite a get-together if all works out,” Krueger said. “We have a group of my theatre friends who are putting the labor together kind of in return for all the get-togethers and after show parties we do here for the (Winfield Community) Theatre etc.” Food is being brought in both days by the mothers (Melody’s and Terry’s), and everyone is really excited about it all.
The old look will get a revamping! Vicki Schafer, Gypsy Schafer and Mary Prochaska are working with the Kruegers to organize help to paint walls a more up-to-date color, and then new art work will go up.
“We’re doing a new theme — Terry’s Donut Depot — with train art work and models to decorate in honor of Terry’s lifelong love of model trains and train history,” Melody Krueger said.
All the new art work will be pictures of trains and train things.
“We hope to also have time to put up short, small shelves on which Terry can display his actual model trains here and there on the walls,” Krueger said. “Later we will be possibly painting a mural down one side of the long hallway involving trains, as well as repainting our big sign for outside, off the alley”.
Eventually, they hope to add a real train that will go the circumference of the dining area.
“We feel really blessed to have such a wonderful family of friends that want to help us,” Krueger said. “Winfield is one of those kind of places that seems to nurture a caring, kind, involved community spirit that is willing to go the extra step for one another.”
Anyone interested in helping Terry and Melody with the Daylight Donut Shop makeover is welcome.
