“Community Futures helped me change my life during the pandemic, I never thought I would be learning how to refinish wood houses or that this would be my business,” says Roslyn Regan-Crew, Owner of Algonquin Wood Restoration.
Algonquin Wood Restoration reflects Roslyn’s environmental mindedness through using and repurposing corn products to strip the old finishes from wood buildings, with minimal environmental impact. The process also allows her to beautify weathered pieces giving them new life and a fresh look in the community she lives in.
"Buying new equipment for your company can be a daunting task.

Many thanks to the CFDC team for making our dreams come true!"
