Janitor builds cabinets for the weihermuhle

What norbert strobel has to his credit: he is a trained cabinetmaker. "I worked in a carpenter’s shop in kulmbach until 2004 and only then became a janitor", says norbert strobel, who is assisted in the workshop by a weihermuhle employee. The head of the housekeeping department, manuela stumpf, who looks after the kitchen and the mostly young customers in buchau, has been working with the material wood since april last year, just like strobel in krumme fohre.

Stumpf and strobel have already processed 870 square meters of furniture for the 25 rooms that are to be occupied for the first time as early as october. "The first group we receive will be a nursing school", says manuela stumpf.

Half a million missing

the new construction of the youth conference center is a challenge for the evangelical deanery. The project is costing 5.9 million euros, 5.4 million of which are pure construction costs. There is still a financing gap of half a million euros. "We hope for donors and sponsors", says dean jurgen zinck, who yesterday received another building block for the realization of the project. The savings bank kulmbach-kronach has 10.000 euro donated. Chairman klaus-jurgen scherr and board member harry weib presented the check to dean zinck and youth officer christian hanf. Both savings bank chairmen emphasized that the savings bank is happy to support such an important construction project for the region.

The importance of the weihermuhle was also emphasized by district administrator klaus peter sollner in his function as chairman of the administrative board. With 10.000 overnight stays per year, this is an important cornerstone in the district’s overall tourism offering.
