On Monday, July 11, Mount Pocono welcomed its newest event space as Venue 138 celebrated its grand opening.
The celebration began at Venue 138’s location on RT 940 around 5:30 PM. Guests arrived in anticipation of the Pocono Chamber of Commerce’s ribbon-cutting planned for 6:00 PM, giving them time to talk, enjoy the food, and experience the event space for themselves. State Representative Rosemary Brown and Chief of Staff from Senator Mario Scavello’s office, Kristine Bush, were in attendance, awarding Venue 138 a Certificate of Recognition, commending them for the investment in the community.
“This opportunity just came up, the building was empty and we made it work. We did all the renovations ourselves, me, my husband, and my five daughters,” said Venue 138 owner Malisa Perry.” It’s a family-owned business, so it’s a collective effort. None of this would be possible without all my girls and my husband.”
Since opening in January, Venue 138 has hosted and planned all sorts of events from weddings, sweet 16’s, baby showers, poetry slams, church, and more. Accommodating for anything, Malisa and her family also offer photo and video services, banquet catering, as well as creating event decors through their other business, 138 Beyond The Décor.
According to their website, “Venue138 offers a stunning location to exchange wedding vows and celebrate significant moments. An extraordinary setting at a great value for your money, we’ve been helping to make special occasions as special as possible since 2000. We offer picturesque ceremony areas as well as a stunning reception space. We’ve been making your celebrations our business since 2000, with our event planning company, 138 Beyond The Décor, and now can’t wait to work with you in the new event space.”
