A Note from the Hall Rental Mgr:

Good day everyone.  

 In order to keep FRA BR-99 clean and free of bugs, there are a few requests of you.    

If you come into the Bldg and bring food in with you, please take your (food) garbage with you.

 If you make coffee, empty and clean the coffee pot once you are done. Also, if possible,  put the used coffee grounds in a sep bag and seal them before leaving them in the trash can.

     Last, if you are drinking soda, rinse the can out and put it in the recycling can instead of leaving them on the tables or the sink.

There are many steps taken to ensure that the Bldg is comfortable and clean for our members so, please...LET's ALL DO OUR PART to keep it this way.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.
