Officials at Hagerstown Community College recently held a dedication ceremony for a beehive artisan bread and pizza oven that was built as a donation by Dave Geller of Michelangelo Masonry.
Geller approached the HCC Alumni Association last spring about the idea to create the oven on the HCC campus. He donated hundreds of hours to complete the project and secured donations for the building supplies. Donors were Antietam Cable Television, Hagerstown Block Company, Redland Brick, Steffey and Findlay, and CMS Industries.
HCC plans to offer non-credit bread making classes, using the oven, as early as 2009. The oven is located by the patio outside the College Center.
