    The building allowed us to get everything we wanted for the price we could afford.

    We are really happy with everything it’s provided for our community, including the lifestyle changes. We attracted 30 new kids to our school, which is really big for our town. And we feel that building is one of the main reasons for it. The building allowed us to get everything we wanted for the price we could afford.

    The building provides a unique environment for attending a concert.

    And the sound quality inside is amazing. It's a terrific venue.

    It was a breath of fresh air.

    No one was really expecting your guys to install it as fast as they did. Once we got to that point where it was time to put the steel up and putting the fabric up…it was a breath of fresh air.
