Be considerate of neighbors—reduce the volume of music after midnight!

Heat:  The heating system has 2 modes. “Unoccupied”, which sets the heat at 55 degrees, and “Occupied” which sets the heat at 70 degrees.  There is a switch next to the kitchen door to change the mode.  If using the heat, it will take approximately 20 minutes for the room to heat up.  Using the ceiling fans will help distribute heat faster.

Building is not air-conditioned; ceiling fans will help on hot days.  Fan ontrol is located to left of light switches.  Blinds kept closed in summer keep the room cooler.  Keep blinds open on sunny winter days for SOLAR   heating—it helps!

Equipment in the hall includes nineteen heavy brown 72” x 30” folding tables, one shorter table 48″ x 30′; two 48” round tables; nine long white light weight tables 96″ x 30″; four white light weight square card tables 34″ x 34″; 62 cushioned stacking chairs (dimensions: chair back from top of seat to top of back 15″; width of seat back 17 1/2″ x depth of back 1 1/4″.  Height of chair from floor to seat top 18″; seat depth 16″ x seat width 16″).  There are about 100 metal folding chairs.

Oven electric range, three basin sink with spray faucet, dish drainer and tray, flatware drainer, refrigerator with freezer compartment, but NO dishwasher.

There are 12 plug ins in the kitchen.  Each is on its own circuit.  Each circuit will handle 20 amps, which is equivalent to 2400 watts. Therefore, each plugin can handle only one high wattage appliance, such as a coffee maker, toaster, griddle.  Check the wattage on your appliances to determine which ones can share a plug in. For instance, a toaster and a crockpot.

50 Cup coffee urn.  Brews full amount in 30 minutes.  And two “Mr. Coffee” drip type coffee makers.

Three large (approx. 20 quart) stainless steel stock pots, one smaller one, a small oval roaster, six big mixing bowls.

80+ heavy stoneware 9” plates varying numbers of mugs, bowls, small plates, small glasses, several sugar bowls, cream pitchers; salt and pepper shakers.  Nine 60 oz. pitchers, 1 gallon pitcher.  Eleven thermal carafes.  We have no stemware.

LOTS of stainless- steel flatware, miscellaneous spatulas, large spoons and other cooking utensils, can openers, accumulation of large plastic spoons and salad servers.

Users are responsible for cleaning any equipment that is used.

Bring your own sharp knives, serving spoons, platters, measuring cups, etc.  Also bring dishtowels and paper towels, and trash bags for cleanup.

All recycling, trash and garbage should be removed. A charge of $20.00 per bag will be added to rental if the town has to remove trash or garbage from the hall.

Tables and chairs must be wiped off and put back where found.  No furniture may be taken outside without prior permission.

Lift tables and chairs—do not slide them—they will scratch the floor.

NO NAILS OR TACK IN THE WALLS, DOORS OR CEILING BEAMS. Remove all decorations before leaving.

If you use the range, be sure to turn off all burners and oven after using. Please wipe out any spills that occurred while using the oven.

Please clean the restrooms if they have been used.  Cleaning supplies are in janitor’s closet.

If you turn on the heat in restrooms, be sure to turn it down to 40 degrees before leaving.

Users must sweep all floors.   Mop with warm water only if sticky.
