Once again, you continue to move us with your steady support and generosity. It is truly humbling and incredibly motivating to watch our numbers climb every day. It is our great pleasure to announce to you that, because of your huge vote of confidence in funding our project, we took a leap and pulled together enough money to have our oven installed in the Community Kitchen. If you remember from last week's update, a space in the kitchen was recently cleared to accommodate our presence. That space is now the proud home of Union Bagel Co's very own Blodgett pizza oven, in which all of our handmade bagels will be baked.
Here is Paul, smiling fondly at our massive oven, mid-installation:

With our oven ready to roll and your enthusiasm and confidence to back us up, we have been able to begin test-baking small batches of bagels in our very own oven. Let us tell you, folks, they taste spectacular!
More updates to come soon. For now, let us tantalize you with this photo...
