Wedding Party at BCH


We're celebrating 85 years of serving the community!  The Hall construction was completed in 1942, so that's 75 years of dancing and serving community Breakfasts and dinners!

While most of our events are cancelled due to the Coronavirus outbreak, we are taking the opportunity to help facilitate creation of self-governing community "pods" that help neighborhoods organize themselves to better withstand crises, both now and in the future. This is a great opportunity to get to know your neighbors, to share contact information, and to see how small groups can be mutually supportive in times of stress. Here are some resources. Click on an item to go to a shared google document. These documents will be updated and expanded as new information comes along. To use a document (such as the spreadsheet) save a copy to your own computer. To contact the pod instigators, email us at Stay healthy!
