The fireplace and seating area as you walk into the venue is so cozy. Kudos to Eudene Rossi, who was so helpful to us in the planning of our event.

“Eudene and the other ladies at the facility (Claret Hall) were so helpful. We discussed the reason for the event, graduation for my boys (one going to college, and two heading off to HS). They made the process very easy for me, such a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend the facility. The warmer kept the food warm, having the kitchen space to store extra items, I could go on and on. Having the facility all to us was definitely a plus. On the day of the activity, Hope was there to answer our questions. Overall, it was a great experience for me throughout these process. I hope to be back there in 4 years when i have a college graduate and HS graduates. ”
