Civic center transforms into event center

By Carolyn B. Edwards BCC Staff Writer

If you have a special occasion coming up, the Medina Lake Betterment Association offers you the perfect place to host your party or reception. The association has renamed the Lakehills Civic Center as the Texas Hill Country Event Center, and it is quickly becoming knows as a top quality, multi-service facility for large group gatherings.
The civic center was built in 1971 by the MLBA, a non-profit organization best known for its internationally famous Cajun Festival in September.
The center is home to senior programs, exercise classes and youth programs.
Recently, the MLBA decided to offer the beautifully upgraded and updated facility for rent for special occasions.
MLBA receives no tax dollars or outside funding and relies on income generated by the Cajun Festival, and now, rental fees for the center, for operating expenses.
The facility offers a full service kitchen equipped with ovens, microwaves and whatever else you might need. There is a serving counter, or tables to set up a buffet line. The center holds 250 people comfortably.
If your event includes a band, there is a spacious stage with sufficient electrical connections.
The facility offers plenty of large folding tables and chairs for your guests.
The restrooms have been recently remodeled and include a spacious dressing room, perfect for the bride to do those important last-minute touch-ups.
There is also plenty of parking on site.
In addition to the fully air-conditioned center, there are also the outdoor pavilions and a gazebo. The back of the center provides a park-like setting with plenty of shade trees.
What a perfect place for a romantic wedding or a family reunion!
The Texas Hill Country Event Center is located on PR 37 in the heart of Lakehills, convenient to your guests from Bandera, Boerne and San Antonio.
"Call us to set up an appointment so we can show you the facility and determine if your selected dates are available," said a spokesman. "We can also discuss pricing and answer any questions you may have." Call 210-379-4142 or 830-751-9904.
