Prioritizing Health & Well-Being

⏤Message From The Owners⏤

First and foremost, our hearts and thoughts go out to all who have been affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. We’d like to extend our prayers and well wishes to you and your family during these unusually fragile times we are all experiencing.

As this global crisis continues to have an increased impact on our communities, we want you to know that providing clean venue environments has always been and continues to remain our first priority. We are monitoring the situation closely as we follow updates and guidelines provided by the CDC to help keep you and our staff safe and healthy.

We are currently taking reservations for any event dates that are beyond May 1st or until government officials clear us to fully reopen. Also, our facility is still open for self-guided on-site tours (which allows us to keep the gathering of people below 10 and for you to still see our venue in person), contact us for more details. Feel free to inquire about pricing and reserve any future events. We are still taking phone calls, answering emails and we remain available via our live chat.

Also, please note that we continue to implement the following ongoing health and safety procedures as follows during this time:

• Proper and frequent sanitization of all frequently touched surfaces in guest and service areas
• Our cleaning staff use gloves and practice proper and frequent handwashing using soap and water
• Any staff members with any signs or symptoms of sickness are prohibited from working and visiting the premises

We will continue to monitor information from public health officials and follow the guidelines to help keep our venue space clean and safe.

In the meantime, check out these free resources and financial breaks that are currently being offered due to the crisis.

Thank you for your ongoing support and we hope you make our space your space soon. We can recover together!

Please be safe! 🙏

Sincerely,

Becky & Gil Stonebarger Signature
