Centennial Warehousing Corporation has graciously agreed to not only continue to donate storage space for our existing wooden vendor stalls, but have offered to store additional stalls that will be built in 2017.
After working with a member of the Des Moines Woodworkers Association, we were able to rework the design so when torn down, the stall fits on a double-wide pallet which can be easily moved around the warehouse with the help of a forklift.
We will continue to work with Waukee High School Industrial Arts Students to build the traditional wooden vendor stalls used at Christkindlmarket Des Moines. We will also be bringing Johnston High School on board to supplement the building process.
As a non-profit, producing an inaugural event, community partners are extremely important. Many thanks to Centennial Warehousing Corporation!
