Frequently Asked Questions

Rental Fees:                              

Checks are due by the rental date, and should be sent to:
MCCC Attn: rentals
PO Box 39
Calais, VT 05648

Damage Deposits:              

Please read and understand the conditions for the return of deposits that are listed on the top half of the rental agreement form. It is the renter’s responsibility to call for an inspection after their event. The damage deposit will not be returned without an inspection. Please call Paige Canfield at #229-9342 promptly after your rental to schedule one. If your event ends later than 9 pm please call the next morning. The conditions listed on the renter’s agreement form must be met in order for the deposit to be returned.

Lock Box:

You will be given the combination to the lock box when you arrange your rental. Please try the lock box before your event, if possible.  Punch in the numbers, push down the latch, and, keeping it pushed down, remove the key pad from the lock box to access the key. Please do not take the key out of the building, or remove it from the jump ring attaching it to the key pad. When you leave, punch in the code, and push down the latch to put the key pad back into the box.

Phone: 

For local calls only. #223-4702

Entry Light:

The light outside the front door is controlled by a timer switch on the wall by the stairs.

Heat:

The thermostat is located in the dining room, on the opposite side of of the wall from the coat hooks. Be sure to put it back to 50 degrees when you leave. The upstairs has a separate heater, with a control by the door to the stairs.

Decorating:

Please do not use push pins in the walls, and be sure to remove all decorations inside and out after your event.

Elevator:

Familiarize yourself with the elevator before your event if you are going to use it. Do not use the elevator to move furniture between floors, and do not use the elevator if you are alone in the building.

AV System:

There is an AV system upstairs that may be used during rentals, with an additional deposit.

Garbage:

There is no trash pick up at MCCC, so you must take your trash when you leave. Please put a new bag in the can. Clean recycling may be left, and there is a compost cone in the back, near the swing set at the end of the fence.

Clean Up:

Follow the clean up check list posted on the fridge, turn the heat down to 50 degrees, check that all exterior doors are  latched shut and locked, turn off all lights and return the key to the lock box.

Maintenance:

If MCCC is out of any supplies, or something needs attention, please note it in the maintenance notebook in the kitchen, or mention it when scheduling your inspection.

Winter Access:

The drive is plowed regularly in the winter, but you may need to arrive early to shovel the walk. There is traction sand in the can by the front door. For large groups make sure that a path is clear from the kitchen door and back stairway to the neighbor’s driveway, for use in case of an emergency. Snow that is tracked in can make the stairs slippery. Please sweep or mop as necessary to keep them safe for use.

Alcohol:

Because of insurance issues, alcohol cannot be consumed at the Community Center, unless served by a licensed caterer who carries their own insurance. One-time event insurance can also be purchased through some companies.

Parking:

Parking at MCCC is very limited. Please encourage ride sharing. If there is going to be a large crowd, use the traffic cones as shown in the below chart.  Click on chart for larger image.
