What Are The Fees?

The fee schedule below is based on ten hours. As you plan your event, you should allow time for both setup and cleanup. The rental time must be strictly adhered to so that additional fees will not be charged. A ten hour period is adequate for most events.

Our schedule for payment is:

  • $500 (Non-refundable reservation/security deposit).
  • This deposit is deducted from the total contract.

Damage Deposit:
  • $500 (14 days prior to the scheduled event)
  • The damage deposit will be returned ten days after the event, provided the Marion Hatcher Center and all related property passes managerial inspection.
  • Failure to pass inspection will result in a charge assessment, which will be deducted from the damage deposit. If the charge exceeds the deposit, the signer of the contract will be billed.
Wedding Rehearsals:
  • Two hours are provided at no charge. This time is for rehearsal only, not decorating.
