The Friendship Heights Village Center offers space for private and business functions on Friday evenings and during the weekend afternoon and evening hours when the Center is closed to the public.
The Center has become a popular location for weddings, bar and bat mitzvas, and other special celebrations.
"The Friendship Heights facility was perfect in every way for our celebration," according to a Somerset House resident who used the Center recently. For another renter, the Center was also ideal: "Without exception, our wedding guests told us it was the loveliest wedding they had ever been to."
Many other types of events have been booked; some for return engagements. Examples are classes that teach social dancing and social skills to young people, monthly programs for a well-known local cultural society, and a social program for handicapped individuals.
