FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Renovations have begun to modernize a
small chapel in the state Capitol.
The Kentucky Department for Facilities and Support Services is
working to restore pews, put up new wallpaper, change carpeting and
construct a wall to separate the chapel from shelves of
communications equipment that had been hidden only by a curtain.
The Kiwanis Club originally opened the chapel in the 1960s in
what had been a storage room on the second floor of the Capitol,
across the hall from the office of the chief justice of the
Kentucky Supreme Court.
State spokeswoman Cindy Landham said no public funding is being
used to purchase materials for the renovation. The Kiwanis Club is
covering that cost with a $3,600 donation.
