Third Street Meetinghouse Usage Calendar

Using the Meetinghouse

An outside group may use our Third Street Meetinghouse (TSM) for an event if the following conditions are met:

  1. Building requests should be made as early as possible including the specific date, and beginning and end time of the event (and which rooms in the Meetinghouse you would like to use). All requests should be emailed to TSM scheduler, Ithacamonthlymeeting@gmail.com
  2. The scheduler will send the group our COVID guidelines (see below).
  3. Someone from Ithaca Monthly Meeting will open the building for the group, and explain how to use the building and our expectations for its care.
  4. Kitchen facilities may be used. Please let the scheduler know you plan to use the kitchen and dine in the building when you schedule your event or meeting. Food should not be consumed in the carpeted areas of the Meetinghouse (many of the upstairs spaces). It is expected that any and all dishes, silverware, serving utensils, or other kitchenware be washed with our sanitizing dishwasher. Instructions are posted on the wall above the machine. The Meeting representative giving groups access to the building can provide guidance as well.
  5. Please be sure to close doors and windows securely before you leave.

Guidelines related to COVID-19

  • Outside groups are permitted to follow their own COVID policies with regards to wearing masks or not.
  • It is advised that windows should be opened as follows:
    • All windows must be open if the temperature outside is above 60 degrees.
    • At least one window must be open on each of the three walls if the temperature is below 60 but above 50.
    • If the temperature is below 50, it is okay to leave the windows closed if you wish.   
    • It is always okay to open the windows if you prefer better ventilation. 
  • All these guidelines may be revised if the pandemic situation improves further or worsens again and the CDC, NYSDOH or TCHD issue new guidelines.
