Betsy Reed Schultz, the founder of the nonprofit Captain Joseph House Foundation, will host the meeting in the main hall of the Queen of Angels Catholic Church at 209 W. 11th St., Port Angeles, at 6 p.m. Wednesday (Dec. 12).
The public can hear about the renovations and improvements Schultz and her team of architects have in store for Schultz's former Tudor Inn bed and breakfast at 1108 S. Oak St.
Additionally, the meeting will allow those attending to learn how they can get involved with the renovation of the house, which Schultz said will be nearly an all-volunteer endeavor.
“This [meeting] is just basically to get everybody on board [and] to say where were and where we're going,” she said.
Schultz said the renovations to the house will cost an estimated $500,000, which will be sought entirely through donations.
The Captain Joseph House — named for Schultz's son, Army Capt. Joseph Schultz, who was killed in action serving in Afghanistan on May 29, 2011 — will be a place of healing and relaxation for the families of military men and women killed in action since Sept. 11, 2001, Schultz said.
The former B&B, once renovated, will be able to host up to three families at a time from Sunday to Friday, Schultz said, and will offer the families a chance to unwind, cook their own meals and experience the numerous outdoor activities the North Olympic Peninsula has to offer.
