Is the facility open for rental or use at this time? I am a member of Gamma Chi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. This is a graduate chapter of professional African American women who provide community service to the Morgantown and Northern West Virginia Communities. I am interested in the history of the building and how it can better serve the community with my Sororities help. Gamma Chi Omega is currently celebrating her 75th Diamond Anniversary. We have been in the community a long time. I eagerly await your response.
