Thank you for helping us keep the building clean and beautiful! Please take with you everything that was brought in for your event. When you will be the last person leaving the building after a meeting or event, be sure everything on this list has been done in the rooms that your group used. *An event cleaning service is recommended for large gatherings and available to you at an added cost of $150. The service provides detailed work such as cleaning the floors: sweeping, vacuuming, mopping and cleaning the bathrooms, however the basic responsibilities of putting things away and trash are still up to the renter.
