GRAFTON–Are you looking for the perfect space to host your next party? If so, look no further than right here in our own small town, as one local organization offers its space to you.
Project HOP2E announced their plans to relocate to the previous store front of Farmer’s Delight in July and were officially able to call the location home in December, after making some changes and performing renovations thanks to gracious community volunteers.
The move offered them a much larger space, and now that members have had time to get settled, they are ready to share that space with members of the community.
Project HOP2E is proud to reveal that their location, at 245 Greene’s Plaza, is up for grabs when it comes to hosting parties, along with other personal events.
With ample parking and the capabilities of accommodating 225 individuals, the Project HOP2E Community Building is the perfect location for birthday parties, family reunions, anniversary celebrations and even wedding receptions.
To rent the space for a small get together of up to 50 attendees the rate is $125, for events with 51-100 guest in attendance the space can be reserved for $150 and for larger groups with over 100 people the rate is $200. All rates also include tables and chairs for your event.
All reservations also require an additional $50 cleaning deposit. The deposit will be returned once the building has been inspected by one of Project HOP2E’s members.
Additionally, a special rate is being offered for major events that will require a bit more time to prepare and decorate for.
The group shared that for those occasions, the facility may be rented for an entire weekend, which would run from Friday at 5:00 p.m. to Sunday at 5:00 p.m., for the amount of $300, plus the $50 deposit.
In the event that a Friday night bingo is scheduled on the same weekend, Project HOP2E members have stated that they will do everything possible to accommodate the needs of the renter.
With this new opportunity, not only will Taylor County residents have a great party location, but in choosing the Project HOP2E Community Building for your get together will in turn benefit the county and its residents.
As a non-profit organization all rental fees will be used to fund Project HOP2E programs that are set in place to assist community members, as well as to support community growth.
“Being able to rent out our facility is going to help us immensely in providing for the community,” added Project HOP2E Secretary Jessica Stewart.
The organization is also continuing to make improvements to the building in order to better serve the needs of its renters.
Project HOP2E President Mike Thrush noted that a new heating and cooling until is being installed thanks to Rick Greene and that plans are in the works to add a kitchen area sometime in the near future for any lessee to use during their event.
“The kitchen project is one that we will be keeping the community updated on as to when it will be closer to a reality,” he added. “Other future plans for our facility also include hosting monthly dances for the youth of our community, as well as holding a senior dance.”
Stewart commented by saying the group is open to feedback regarding their ideas for community activities.
Additionally, Project HOP2E hosts bingo night every second and fourth Friday of each month. Doors open at 5:00 p.m., and the first number is called at 6:30 p.m.
