EQUIPMENT INFORMATION – COMMUNITY ROOM
1. Four music stands, two 3’ tall stools, a two person piano bench, plus 150 audience chairs and
20 rolling tables (24” x 60”) are available for use.
2. The Community Room has a public address system with ceiling speakers, 2 cordless mics and
stands, and 1 lavalier mic that clips to the lapel. The control panel for the PA system is in the
storage room on the west wall. Turn on the red power switch at the top. The volume control for
the 4 mics should be set between 3-4. Do not touch or change any other controls. Take the
silver key that is hanging from the antenna on the control panel and open the small wood
computer cabinet in the community room. (If the key is missing, ask the Facility Attendant for
the key.) The drawer inside the cabinet contains the mics and spare batteries. On the cordless
mics, press the left button—green is on, yellow is mute, no light is off. Do not touch the button
on the right as the mic may not work. Test the mic(s) to make sure the volume is set to the
desired level. There is a laminated tutorial in the cabinet drawer that gives info on using the
mics, computer, DVD projector and overhead screen. After your event, return the mics, turn off
the equipment, lock the cabinet and return the key.
