Spend Money on Kanley Chapel for handicap accessibility & renovations


Kanley Chapel is a place where families, couples, and various organizations have come together to fellowship to create unity. Kanley has been known to be a sacred place that should be cherished and not taken for granted. By renovating Kanley Chapel, it would allow people to fully enjoy their experience and not have any regrets, for instance, wedding clients who’s pictures don’t come out bright enough due to the dim lighting in the chapel. It would also eliminate some safety issues such as: unstable wooden pews that are loose, and health issues like heat stroke and fainting because it's too hot in the summer due to the building not having any air. The renovations would also allow the elderly and people who are handicapped to access simple things such as the bathroom. Currently, the elderly have to go outside, and taken around the whole building to get to the lower level where the restroom is located if they can't use the steps. Kanley would surely bring in more clientele and happier groups by accommodating this group of people. When it comes to the physical aspect of Kanley, renovating would be the most ideal so people can actually enjoy their worship experience and not settle for mediocre standards. Presently, the lower level carpet is horrid, having stains everywhere to the carpet giving off a bad scent. The furniture is so old and un-kept that dust comes out of it when people sit on it. All of these things are unacceptable and cannot go unnoticed. Kanley Chapel should have priority on Western Michigan’s Campus because it has played a huge part in both my life and hundreds of others. Some people want to getmarried at Kanley because they met their spouse there and want to cherish and relive every moment of that experience, but can’t, due to the condition Kanley is in. As an employee at Kanley, we honor and strive to make our clients happy because when our customers are happy, we’re happy.
