Acoustic Tiles Installed in Carriage House
August 2019

Box displaying 'Sounds great!' text.

Acoustic tiles were recently installed on the ceiling of the Carriage House. This has improved the quality of sound in the building. This will make presentations and meetings a lot easier, since the echo-y sound has been eliminated. If you are looking for a place to hold your next meeting or presentation, considering contacting us about using the Carriage House. We can hold presentations for up to 44 people.
