A Tribute to our Cleaners

As you know, cleaning can be a thankless job, especially here at the Homestead. It takes about two hours to clean up the day’s messes, and one day later it’s messy again! We are incredibly thankful for the many hours our cleaners spend making this place shine, between broom-sweeping the floor, emptying trashes, cleaning bathrooms, sweeping rugs, washing windows, mopping floors, and wiping down appliances. All the work often goes unnoticed, but if it were to get forgotten, well, that would certainly get noticed right away!

Our cleaners come in at the end of the day, after almost everyone has left in order to lighten the loads of the deli workers and kitchen staff. And help them it does! A few years ago, we didn’t have cleaners and the deli workers had to stay after work every day in order to get cleaning done. It is so wonderful to have a fresh load of energy to accomplish the rather mundane but necessary tasks.

We just wanted to take a moment to salute our cleaners and thank them for the many hours they have put into serving the Homestead and its wonderful customers. They certainly do a great job keeping this place looking sharp and performing quality work that represents the Homestead well!

  1. That’s a wonderful public tribute to two young ladies who, as you say, do all the thankless, mundane, dirty jobs that certainly would be missed in a heartbeat if they forgot to do any of them even once!
    Cleaning is hard work, and restaurant work is also hard work. Having done both, a couple of times both at the same employer, I can certainly appreciate how much work is involved in just one of them!
    We hope to visit your restaurant sometime soon, but we don’t get up that way too often these days. We do have family in the area, and were residents of Goodland when we first came to live in Indiana, following my husband’s discharge from military service in 1977, in Virginia, my own home state. He grew up in eastern Illinois and also spent many summers on his grandparents’ farm in western Indiana. He has many friends up there, and introduced me, a Big City girl from the Chesapeake Bay area of southern Virginia, to farm life in the Midwest! We live east of Indianapolis now and have for some time. We visit up there as we can, and will definitely have to check out your place as soon as we can. The pictures of your offerings are surely mouthwatering!
    Have a wonderful weekend, and congratulate your young ladies for me! Cleaning to Health Department Standards in Restaurants is quite a job!
