Reservations: If you make a reservation and have to cancel, please call  at least two days in advance. Because of new policies imposed by the caterers, we will be obliged to charge ‘no-shows’ for their meals. 

Parking: Normally an issue in the past, there have been some changes to better serve our community patrons. In each CC parking lot, there is paid parking available.  Look for a large yellow machine which, for the correct amount of change, will dispense parking tags.  Should you prefer free parking, there is a lot on Nevada and Uintah with a free shuttle service. Look for the green and yellow buses. The shuttle will drop you across the street from Gaylord Hall.
