The 917 Venue, located at 14575 Al Hwy 22 in Orrville held its grand opening and ribbon cutting last Saturday.

Formerly a hair salon, the 1,900-square-feet building can be rented for various occasions.

Baby showers, small wedding receptions and birthday parties are just some of the things guests can rent the space for.

Owner, Kamilah Smith said with faith in God anything is possible.

“It started with a warm welcome from the mayor, Louvenia Lumpkin,” Smith said. “If we put God first everything else will follow. She was excited about how Dallas County is growing.”

Smith said Lumpkin spoke to the crowd about adding to the community and how it is of value.

“Anytime you could add to the community it builds it,” Lumpkin said. “A family that prays together, stays together.”

The reservation fee is $300 with a $50 deposit.  Additional rentals are two gold throne chairs or two silver throne chairs for $80 each or $150 for a pair.
