Islanders or members' rate: $50 for 5-hr or less, $75 one-day rental. Everyone loves the hall: it's open, spacious, has lots of tables and serving things. It doesn't have tv or wireless distractions. Real interactions and conversation can happen here. Call to reserve your event day, 766-8202. You can rent the video projector or sound system if needed (additional fee). More info.. 1/7/14
