Hal Holmes Community Center


At this time and due to current masking restrictions we are only  accepting reservations for business, community/non-profit group meetings and events. We are not accepting reservations for private parties and/or banquets.  

All guests 5 years old and older are required to wear a properly fitting multiple layered mask when in the facility. No exceptions are made for the masking mandate and accommodations for curbside and remote service must be made with the event's host and not the Hal Holmes staff. Any group that can not follow the masking policy may be asked to leave the facility immediate and no refunds will be offered.

Catered meal services are permitted with scheduled meal times, not lasting more than 1/2 hour during your event or meeting. 

Face masks and hand sanitizer are provided at every event's entrance. 

Cancellations due to COVID-19 may occur at any time, refunds will be issued if an event cannot be rescheduled. If your event needs to be cancelled due to a COVID concern within your group or event planned please contact the Hal Holmes staff immediately at 509-962-7240.
