Facilities Use 2013 Annual Report:
There is a community need for use of Third Haven facilities by outside organizations. The Facilities Use Committee screens and coordinates requests as they occur. All Meeting activities take precedence over any non-meeting organization and each organization is required to abide by the policies stated in the Meeting directory. A Meeting member oversees each event. Reasons for applications are the sense of unity, tranquility and seeming remoteness projected by the property combined with being a central location.
During the past year the committee has approved rental for one wedding and one memorial service in the Brick Meetinghouse for persons not affiliated with the Meeting. Talbot County District Court Mediators, Talbot Partnership, The Society of Preservation of Maryland Antiquities, Evergreen Cove, Channel Markers and Smart Recovery have used the Common Room for special meetings.
All organizations and individuals have universally expressed appreciation and gratitude for being allowed to hold events at Third Haven. We look foremost upon this as an outreach activity for the Meeting. There is no set fee for non-profits to use the facilities for a special meeting. Donations amounting to $2040.00 have been received.
Respectfully submitted, Ann Williams and Molly
