Convenience is key for Events

Anyone who has a large family knows the feeling when a holiday or another occasion approaches and there is always that first question - who will host the party? Events, a new business is Harmony, Minn., has got you covered.

Few people have homes big enough to comfortably provide accommodation for a very large group. You can now rent the space at Events right on the main street of Harmony for your upcoming special occasion.

No longer will you have to stress about cleaning your house right down to the very last cobweb just so your friends and family can mess it up again!

Owners Curt and Brenda LaFleur found themselves in the same tight situation that your family may be in when either of their large families got together.

“We figured other people must be like us” and could use a place for family get-togethers and other big gatherings.

The former Klip Joint building on the south end of main street was for sale and, “It was kind of out of the blue,” says Brenda, but they decided to purchase the building from the City of Harmony.

Curt, who does carpentry work, says purchasing and remodeling the building is an investment for the couple that they feel is a good one. The top floor houses an apartment which they have rented.

Once the building belonged to them in November 2015, the couple began remodeling the main floor.

A wall was removed to “open it up,” states Brenda. New floors, walls, paint, furniture and a lot more were completed with both Curt and Brenda working at it.

Curt notes, “There was a lot of curiosity as to what was going on” while the remodel was in progress and “those who saw it liked it,” he says.

Gender neutral colors were used, which makes the area easy to decorate for any occasion. Brenda describes the decor as “industrial rustic,” including sliding barn-type doors which can be closed to separate the full kitchen from the seating area.

There is a large area where tables can be set up to suit your needs for whatever the occasion may be. The LaFleur’s approximate 40-45 people can fit comfortably in the space. There is also a flat screen television and DVD player for those who wish to use them.

Aside from cushioned dining chairs, there are a few big comfy chairs and an electric fireplac, which gives the area a homey feel.

The space was .....
