We will begin our bathroom renovation project on April 1 and continue through May 31. We are looking forward to providing our patrons with new and updated bathrooms, as well as an additional family restroom. The family bathroom will mean that parents with young children and people with special needs will have a private bathroom. Unfortunately, bathroom usage will be extremely limited during the renovations. Therefore, we ask that patrons plan accordingly. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the dust or noise.
