2015 Spring Events

Safety comes first!

For the second part of 2014 we established a pre-reservation policy due to the limited seating capacity upstairs. Due to the fire code and building code the capacity on the 2nd floor can not exceed 73 people. The policy was well received and will continue to be in effect for all upcoming events. So, for your own safety and the safety of others please reserve your seat for all programs!
