Open Arms Community Church is the owner of the Sandy's headquarters building in Kewanee, Illinois. Rev. Rene' Barth was kind enough to share some pictures of the structure as it stands today in 2008. Open Arms Community is currently trying to raise funds to help restore and maintain the integrity of the building. If you wish to make a tax free contribution to the church to help maintain this original Sandy's classic building, please contact Open Arms Community at 309-852-6513 for more information. Open Arms Community Church has no affiliation with this website.
The three pictures with the tile panels are of the legendary Sandy's spiral staircase in the center of the building. The fifth is a picture that was left here and we had it restored. The sixth picture is some items that were given to us. The last two pictures are of the ladies room on the first floor. This room is the way it was when we got the building. It has not been changed.
