Castle Manor has a big kitchen with gas stove, refrigerator, separate freezer and a large heating rack for keeping food warm. It has two all-new restrooms, air conditioning & heat, tables & chairs. It has an outdoor patio area with lights when it gets dark. It has two large TV's; they are not connected to commercial stations, but they can be connected to the internet via iPad or smart phone (with cords that YOU bring). Castle Manor is wheelchair accessible. It has memories from our youth, spruced up with a good shot of botox. ;-)

Rental of Castle Manor has been funded by James Britton, Suzy Collins, Mary Jane Dexter, Spider Draves, Marilou Karst. Jim Locke, Mike Natali, Pat McGee, Debbie Morse, Carolyn Schwartz, Connie Shafer, Joe Swift, Jerry Thacker, Eve Thompson, and Mr./Ms. Anonymous.
Steve Cunningham and Debbie Werbrouck donated cash to cover incidentals.
Terry DeMaegd arranged for the rental, and his name is on the line for the contract.
Terry also personally paid for the beer/wine license for the day.
