Senior center available for special occassions

Published 5:48 pm Sunday, July 31, 2016

Recently, it was brought to my attention that the community didn’t know that we have space available for rent at the Mower County Senior Center.

If you are having a family function, Christmas party, class reunion, baptism or a work meeting we have space for you. Our dining room holds up to 300 people and has a stage, sound equipment, screen, projector and lots of tables and chairs.

We have smaller rooms available that hold 45 and a board room for up to 20 people. If you are a member of the senior center we offer a great discount on your rental. We also have a liquor license and a portable bar. For more information or to book your room contact Teresa Bartholomew at 507-481-3332. Hope to see you here.
