Centennial Hall Fast Facts

Centennial Hall is not a town building and is owned and managed by the non-profit Friends of Centennial Hall (FOCH).

The FOCH live in the community and volunteer their time and skills to support the restoration and renovation of the Hall.

Tenants offer a wide variety of classes to the community and their rents help pay for the Hall’s operational costs.

Community groups and non-profits utilize the Hall for meetings, classes and social events.

FOCH operates without overhead so all donations go directly to renovation and restoration projects.  Recently completed projects include; parking lot paving, new building entry walkways, new doors, new signage, resurfacing and refinishing studio floors -  and are the direct result of donor gifts.

We are only able to use a small portion of the Hall as we look to add an elevator to gain access to the second floor grand ballroom.
