The hall rents for $30 per hour or $300 per day. 

A deposit of $150 required for each rental. 

This deposit will be refunded the next business day after the rental. For your deposit to be returned the hall must be cleaned (including the restrooms) and the key returned. 

Note: Fire code limits the occupancy of the hall to 240 people.

Pavilion Rental 

A large pavilion (Rotary Pavilion) is also available for rental at the community park for $30 per day. 

A smaller pavilion (Charlie Lott Pavilion) is available for $20 per day. 

Both pavillions have access to power and close proximity to the playground equipment and ball diamonds. 

Reservations and rental fees are not required for use, however, it will guarantee that the pavilion is yours to use for that day via a contract.
