A Productive 2021 and More To Do in 2022

After reopening in Spring 2021, the Hall was busy throughout the rest of the year. The building hosted a number of events, while staff and board members organized activities in the community and coordinated projects to maintain and restore the building. Here's an overview of a busy year, and a preview of 2022!

 

The Hall was used for 168 events, including:

  • 91 recurring rentals (ex: church services, yoga classes)

  • 49 single event rentals (ex: weddings, parties, memorial services, meetings)

  • 43% to community residents/non-profit organizations

  • 12 community meetings/events


  • 14 theatre rehearsals and performances

Over 600 volunteer hours by community members enabled us to accomplish some important projects:
