"The Community House is a beautiful venue for a wedding. Even though the weather did not cooperate, the staff made a seamless transition from outside to a beautiful inside location. Our guests have told us it was the best food at a wedding they have ever had. The filet was outstanding! Highly recommend!"


"In July 2021 held a "rehearsal reception" for our son's wedding.  76 people and not once did my wife or I asked for assistance related to anything.  The staff anticipated all needs and we just mingled and enjoyed the night.  The easy to plan and implement event we have ever experienced.  2 weddings, 3 Bar Mitvah's gave us background in challenges of large family/friend events.  These folks were the best!"


"One of the things that appealed to me about The Community House as a venue is that we have so many opportunities to return as a couple to take classes, do date-night activities, and support the community. That's so different than most facilities that only operate as special-events venues, are privately owned, and aren't accessible without an invitation or a ticket."  


"I want to thank you for EVERYTHING! The ceremony and reception couldn't have been more perfect! All of our family and friends have been saying how wonderful everything was."


"My daughter and new son-in-law held their wedding reception at the Community House on Sunday. Your facility was clean and well maintained. The staff was courteous and extremely helpful. All of the food served was beautifully presented and delicious. Thank you for helping to give my little girl the perfect day. I would recommend your facility to everyone."
