Manchester has a new venue to hold receptions, parties and other events.
It’s called The Gathering Place. Owners Don and Kathy McCurdy have opened it in their former Main Street Market location on the north end of town.
Don says they’ve worked hard to transform the old grocery store into an event center.
The Gathering Place can hold up to 500 or even 600 people – or if you want a cozier setting for a small group, divider walls can be set up to partition off the space. Nine reservations have already been booked over the next couple years. The McCurdy’s are hoping the calendar will fill up more once people get a chance to see the place during an open house this Sunday.
Sunday’s open house runs from 2 to 5 pm. The Manchester Chamber Ambassadors stopped by Thursday to get a sneak peek and hold a ribbon cutting. For more information on The Gathering Place, check out their Facebook page or their website: gatheringplace2017.wixsite.com/eventcenter.
