The parking lot directly adjacent to Hall has been allocated for the use of the Hall. For the safety of your guests and members of the Fire Company, we ask that all efforts be made to restrict parking to the designated area. We never know when the Fire Company will be toned for an incident, resulting in emergency vehicle traffic on the premises.

Fire Alarm Response Information: 

In the event the Fire Company is toned out for an incident, we ask that all members of the event remain inside the facility, due to the increased amount of traffic that will be entering and exiting the property.

In the event of an alarm here in the facility, you and your guests should evacuate the building and stage, at a safe distance, in the parking lot outside the large double doors you and your guests entered through.

Please be aware that breaking any of these hall rules and / or any damages caused that are not immediately reported will result in no refunds and no future rental rights.

All of your guests must remain in the rental hall at all times (with the exception of smokers stepping out to the designated smoking area.
