If you want us to set up the room, set up charges are an additional $25 to $50 depending on the type of setup desired.

For renters to serve alcohol, in any form, including wine and/or beer, at an event, you must have a special event policy from your insurance company that names the Glen Ellyn Historical Society and the Village of Glen Ellyn as additional insured. We must have a copy of that insurance policy on file prior to your event. You are also required to get any special event permits/licenses the Village of Glen Ellyn and the State of Illinois require, and to meet all additional requirements under the law, as well as having certified BASSET servers.
