Directions to FRC: from Main Gate | from Dupont Gate
The white and green building which houses the FRC was constructed in the Greek Revival Style by the American Red Cross in 1917.
The FRC is available for use during the day, evenings, weekends, and holidays. The priority for use of the FRC is as follows:
Reservation period for recurring FRG meetings is held on the first Monday in August. Numbers are given out beginning at 0700 with the first number being called at 0900. Notice of date is advertised in the Northwest Guardian and the Daily Bulletin.
Reservations are made only in person at the FRC, on a first come, first served basis. Each person will be given only one number and may make only one reservation.
Two slots are available on weekday evenings. One group may meet in the conference room and one in the kitchen/dining room. The child care room is reserved on a first come, first served basis.
Holiday Party Reservation Guidelines
Holiday parties are scheduled to use the first floor of the entire building.
Party reservations will be held the first Monday in October. Numbers are given out beginning at 0700 with the first number being called at 0900.
Reservations are taken for three groups per day: 1000-1400, 1400-1800, and 1800-2200. This includes set up and clean up times.
No alcohol, smoking, red drinks of any kind, candles, or animals (unless they are a certified service animal) are allowed in the facility.
All reservations and/or changes must be made in person at the FRC.
Users are requested to notify the FRC, a minimum of 72 hours in advance, if they decide not to use the date reserved so that it may be offered to other groups. If a group fails to cancel, does not show, or cancels the day of their event for 2 months in a row, the group's recurring reservations will be cancelled for the year and the group will only be allowed to make reservations on a case by case basis.
