El Karubian News
The El Karubah Shrine Building is available for rent on a first-come first-serve basis.
Due to the large amount of interest in the rental of our building, we can no longer hold usage dates without a contract and monetary deposit. You are urged to sign your contract as soon as possible after your decision to rent the facility. Your $500.00 non-refundable retainer fee will guarantee your availability, and will apply toward your total rental fee.
