Friends' Fee Schedule

Room Rental

There are 3 rooms available for rent. One or as many as three rooms may be rented at one time, depending on the number of guests attending the event.

Each room can accommodate approximately 100 guests. The Friends Community Center staff is available to assist you with determining your space needs. The number of people that will fit comfortably in a room varies with the number of food tables, gift tables, whether the screens are down and Power Point is used, etc. When booking Room A, please take into consideration the loss of space for tables if the dance floor is being used for dancing. Due to fire codes, exceeding the limit of guests per room is prohibited. Please consult the Friends Community Center staff regarding total limits.

Access to facility for set-up and clean-up

Renter will be given access to the facility two hours before the event scheduled time and two hours after the event for set up and clean up. Additional time for weekend events from Friday after 4:00 pm to Sunday at midnight will require an additional charge of $25 per hour. All weekend events must be out by midnight on Sunday.

For Saturday weddings/receptions, the Friends Community Center will make every effort to allow for a Friday set-up/decorating time between the hours of 8:00 am – 4:00 pm unless another event has been previously scheduled.
