Our welcoming building is symbol free, and offers settings for conferences, performances, and gatherings of all kinds.  While no affiliation or member referral is required for rentals, we do ask that if you are considering renting our facility for a wedding or a memorial service, you contact our office staff ( so we can let you know about our policies regarding these events.
