Updated Information for Member Meetings (and Renters)

Sep 23, 2022 | Beacon, Members News, News

Hello, my friends.  As many of you know, we now only have one caretaker to cover all the cleaning, maintenance, and repairs on this large campus. While Celil is a wonder and always willing to assist, the huge volume of work doesn’t allow him to do everything we were accustomed to when we had a second caretaker.  As many groups are returning to meet onsite, I am sending a reminder that you are responsible to set up and tear-down your own events.  Sadly, I did not get any responses following my July Beacon article asking for volunteers to form a set-up team we can call on, but my dream is to have a group of members who are willing to help out occasionally. I would be very happy to hear from any of you who would like to volunteer for the “dream team” of set-up volunteers.  I do want to express my appreciation to all of you who kindly stepped up for Salmon Bake and for the Totem Pole event. We are very grateful to you for offering your time and helping to make the events extra special.

Meeting Set-up/Tear-down Procedures:

  • Complete the Member Room Reservation form, on our ESUC website. Under Additional Comments and Questions, include which types of tables you would like, and you will be informed where to locate them prior to your meeting.  Also note if you would like a TV cart for your meeting.  The carts are first come/first served, so submit your requests early. Instructions for use are located on the carts.  You must bring your own laptop to connect.
  • At the end of your meeting/event, please return the room to its original arrangement.
  • If you have used one of our kitchens, please wash and put away dishes and utensils, including emptying the dishwasher.
  • Wipe tables and counters and clean debris out of sinks.
  • Make sure coffee pots are cleaned and coffee grounds removed.
  • Brooms or vacuum cleaners are located in each space so that your group can tidy up messes.

Many thanks for your cooperation. Contact [email protected] with additional questions or updates.
