50% of the room rental and a signed rental agreement is required to book the date.

Contract lessee will need to provide a state issued photo I.D. and current contact information (phone number & email). Additional deposits may be required.
[NOTE: Payments received to book date will serve as signed rental agreement.]What is included with a room rental?
All our room rentals include an eight-hour time block within our event operating hours as well as tables & chairs custom arranged to fit the needs of your event.
Additional amenities including additional hours, A/V equipment, kitchen usage, linens, dance floor, stage, and more may all be available for rent at an additional charge (see website link below).
