The Boone Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (BUUF) is pleased to make our facilities available to members, community and non-profit groups, private individuals and groups. Requests for use of the facilities must be made through the Fellowship Administrator, who may be reached at 828.262.4456.

A “Facility Use Agreement” and all other pertinent forms must be signed by someone 18 years and older, who, as a representative of the group requesting use of BUUF buildings, agrees to abide by the policies and procedures and rules and conditions set forth herein. This is applicable to BUUF members and non-members, for use of the building outside of BUUF purposes (defined as regularly scheduled or special events sanctioned by the Board of Trustees [BOT]).

Fees for building use are outlined in the Rental Fee Schedule. The person responsible for use of the building will provide a deposit of $100.00, unless they are a current BUUF member in good standing. The deposit will be refunded if the conditions of the agreement are met. Any deviation of this policy must be approved by the BOT.

All facility users must abide by the following rules and conditions:

1) Only the rooms/buildings and entrances designated on the Facility Use Agreement may be used.

2) Premises shall be left by user in a clean and orderly condition, with chairs and podium arranged as directed by the Fellowship Administrator (a diagram will be provided). Any safety concerns or damage discovered upon first entering the building must be brought to the immediate attention of the Fellowship Administrator.

3) The method of access to the property and/or need of a Building Attendant for an event will be determined by the BOT, based on the nature of the event and number of attendees expected. A BUUF member (or on-site BUUF Building Attendant if deemed necessary by the BOT) must be on site to unlock the building(s), operate A/V if it has been planned for use, provide emergency assistance if needed, and secure the building(s) after the event. If a key is provided to access the property, it is to be returned to the Fellowship Administrator the day following the event.

14) The BUUF buildings exist primarily for use of the Fellowship. In the event that the Fellowship should suddenly and unexpectedly need the building for its own use (example: memorial services), members and community groups may be asked to forfeit a regularly scheduled meeting or event. We will try to give users ample time to adjust their times and programs.

15) If your group uses this facility for regular meetings or events, we ask that you read these policies and procedures your groups at least once a quarter. You will be responsible for your group's compliance to the above guidelines. The Fellowship reserves the right to terminate a contract if parties fail to comply with guidelines. Individuals and groups unable to use the property responsibly, according to the above rules and conditions, will not be permitted continued use.
