Lower Level Living Part 2

Schloegel hosts Serbians

Schloegel Design Remodel recently participated in the Community Connections Program of the United States Agency for International Development and World Learning, in which we hosted 10 visitors from Serbia. The Community Connections Program is administered locally by the International Visitors Council of Greater Kansas City (KCIVC).
