can incur additional charges).

arrangements have been made prior to event date.

Facility Restrictions

are allowed as long as the wick is below the top of its container.

  • Decoration is limited to those that are free standing and will not be permitted to be attached to the walls or

other structures of the building.

  • Decorators will have two hours for clean up at the conclusion of the event. The decorator at the conclusion of

the event will remove all items brought into the building for use of the decorator.

  • The decorated area(s) will be left in the same condition as it was found. This includes sweeping and mopping

the floor.

  • Trash and debris will be removed from the premises at the conclusion of the event and taken offsite. The use of

trash bags is required. Please bring an adequate supply of 50 gallon trash bags for your needs. (There will be

a $25 fee for the use of our dumpster, if required).

before leaving.
