We have a select group of Preferred Caterers that has been chosen based on our Function Coordinators’ past historical experience. In addition we have a Pantry with an institutional size warming oven and refrigerator, stainless steel serving table, and sink for washing/rinsing.
There is a Service Bar located in the hallway just outside the Great Hall on the 2nd floor.
We only disclose summary information for our Statement of Financial Position and Statement of Functional Expenses. Please see our 990 form for further details, which is filed with the Massachusetts Attorney General’s office.
We have a ramp from our parking lot into the first floor at the front of the building. We have an Elevator that provides access to the 2nd floor Great Hall. The Elevator can only be used with a trained operator. If your Affiliate Group doesn’t have a trained operator the group must pay for a host supplied by the Foundation.
We are a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization. All donations are charitable tax deductions. Donations are critical to our ability to provide a meeting place for our Affiliate Groups at a very reasonable cost to these Groups. It costs over $50,000 annually to maintain and operate the Center. Please contact us if you need our tax-exempt legal status confirmed.
The Community Center does not own the parking spaces located in the front of the building. The Unitarian Church, next door, generously donates their parking spaces for use by the Center. All large events must first be pre-approved by the Church prior to confirming an event. Our Function Coordinator will do this so please refrain from contacting the Church. We also have access to other parking spaces that are described in the attached parking map. Depending on circumstances our Function Coordinator may provide specific instructions on where to park.
Our building is available for free during the weekdays for the Affiliate Groups. On weekends including Friday nights there is a nominal charge for renting space. We have other fees that are assessed for all events if food is served, an event is open to the public, alcohol is served, or there is a need for setting-up/breaking-down furniture. Please see our Prices for further information.
All our terms and conditions are listed in the Rental Agreement. If you have additional questions please contact us.
