IF SOMEONE DOES BOOK THE HALL THE NIGHT
BEFORE YOUR EVENT, AS SOON AS THEY DO SO, I WILL BE ON THE CALL TO
NOTIFY YOU.  
EVERYTHING WILL BE DONE TO SEE TO IT YOUR DAY IS AS

  • Uplighting       $20.00 each or (7) for $120 (blue, green, yellow, red, pink)

DECORATING
Columbia Turner Hall is liberal with how you want to decorate; however, the Hall DOES
NOT ALLOW:
  • Scotch tape to be used but will allow 3M Command Strips to be used
  • Confetti
  • Glitter
  • Water Beads (they end up on the floor and are hard for cleaning crew to pick up)

If you are considering a Candy Buffet please
NO:
  • Salt Water Taffy
  • Cracker Jacks
  • Jelly Beans
  • Or Candy similar to the above as these are very hard to remove from the floor
    when we clean

DUE  TO INSURANCE LIABILITY WE CAN ONLY ALLOW FLAMELESS CANDLES
TO BE USED IN OUR HALL. BERRY LIGHTS ARE A GOOD ALTERNATIVE TO
FLAMELESS AND CHEAPER.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES CAN REAL
CANDLES BE USED.

Any decorations that go up must be taken down and boxed up for removal on the night of
your event. We do the cleanup (tablecloths (if ours are used, removing of any liquids and
debris from tables.)

The empty boxes that held your decorations may be stored neatly in our back room so that
they will be readily available at the end of the night for you to bring out and pack up.

SCHEDULING
The Hall will call the month prior to your Event to schedule the two week appointment where
you will meet with me to finalize the details such as menu, pay your 50% deposit on the
food and your floor plan as to how you would like tables set. At this time decorating
arrangements will also be discussed.

I also recommend giving the DJ and your Cake people my cell phone number so that
arrangements can be made between them and me to get them into the Hall  (preferably
calling the day before..) It is one less thing you will have to worry about on your Special Day.

FLOOR PLANS
When planning your table arrangements keep in mind we do allow you to mix tables and to
also make pods (squares) out of our rectangular tables (such arrangements cannot be
done over 400 people). Just remember doing so takes up more room that could be used
for additional seating. Also when planning table arrangements allow 5' between tables to
allow for chair push back.

BAR
We have Bud Light and Miller Lite on tap. If you choose to use these draft beers you will
only be charged for the beer you drink. If a 1/2 barrel is used you will be charged for a 1/2
barrel, if a whole 1/2 barrel is used you will be charged for a whole. We charge our cost
(current costs at time of event) plus $95 a 1/2 barrel (total cost of 1/2 barrel $190.)

The same situation applies for rail alcohol or premium alcohol. You will only be charged for
what has been used plus a $40 per liter charge which includes cups, ice and set ups.

Sodas and .Bottled Tea are charged out at $1 per soda.

Any questions regarding the Bar are better answered by Glen Stechmesser who can be
reached at 281-5653.
