     Friends and Family Reunions Idea:

Reserve the whole House for your group.  (Special group rates available.)
•Meet at the Mason House for a kick-off appetizers 'meet and greet' time. Bring your own munchies, or ask Joy about providing some.
•Then you can either go to the restaurant of your choice or bring in a Pot Luck meal in our dining room.
•Use the Dining Room for a Game Night before spending the night in a comfortable bed.  We have three large tables so you can play cards or Dominoes or a board game, or what ever you want to bring.
•Eat a hearty breakfast to prepare for your day of fun. Be sure to let Joy know if anybody has any dietary issues.
•As a group, go hiking, biking, canoeing, picnicking, or just relax and get to know each other again.
•Reserve the Riverside Park Shelter House and have a cookout.  (Call the Greef Store to reserve the Shelter House: (319) 592-3579)
•Use the Parlor to play a Murder Mystery game, or have a sing-along or a Talent Show.
•Spend a second night to recuperate from all your fun.
•Repeat as necessary to make your Reunion a success!
     Wedding / Honeymoon Idea:
•Reserve the whole House for your Wedding Group.
•Spend the night before the wedding at the Mason House Inn, to insure a quiet restful night.
•The girls can dress in one building and the guys in another to insure privacy.
•Have your wedding in either the Rose Garden or the Historic Presbyterian Church.  (Contact Betty Printy about these locations: (319) 592-3222.)
•Have your Reception in either the Shelter House across the street ((319) 592-3579 to reserve), or the Stone House building. (Betty Printy again.)
•Cake and Flowers can be ordered from HyVee in Fairfield.
•Spend your Honeymoon in the privacy of the Caboose Cottage.  A one-of-a-kind experience!
•The rest of your group can spend the night in the Main House.
•Meet up at breakfast and then open presents in the Parlor.
•A Wedding to remember!
