    We ask you to leave the hall as clean as you receive it. ISW will deduct cleaning charges should the hall require cleaning. The kitchen should be left without anything on the counters.

The garbage bags should be securely tied and thrown away in the dumpster in the back of the building. Please do not leave any trash outsider the dumpster since it attracts the wild animals.  Please put all the red chairs against the walls all around the room in single row. All the round tables should be stacked on the right side of the hall (next to the main entrance) in three stacks not more than 5 tables in each stack. The rectangle tables should be stacked under the kitchen window. All the tables’ white side should be facing out.
