Although Flanner and Buchanan was originally known for funeral services, they offer many other services many are not aware of.
Among those separate services are birthday parties, corporate meetings, vow renewals, receptions and any type of social event or memorial service.
Many of those events are private, as people book the venue specifically for their event. But on Sept. 17 at the Geist location, 7855 Cork Road, Flanner and Buchanan will be hosting an event in conjunction with the Lawrence Chamber. The event is free and open to the public. The evening will provide food and wine with plenty of networking amongst the other attendees and chamber members.
The event will begin at 5 p.m. and last until 7 p.m.
Currently no other events are scheduled for September, but event manager Jennifer Korb and general manager of Buchanan group Mark McCrocklin said that the schedule is constantly changing.
Korb said this is the second time the chamber has met at the Geist location, which has been open for over a year.
“All of our facilities have built-in dance floors, state-of-the-art sound equipment and can hold 150 people,” Korb said. “We also have a liquor license. All these things make it a really nice venue.”
McCrocklin said that business has been great since the venue opened.
“Our venues are absolutely stunning,” he said. “In all of our facilities you can support all of life’s relationships,” he said. “All of our facilities have been designed for all of life’s events. Bruce Buchanan is very innovative with what he does with his facilities and that shows when you walk through the facility.”
To schedule an event, call Korb at 396-3726 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“My event staff if awesome and people love our staff and they get such great customer service you don’t always get at other venues,” Korb said. “I think people really appreciate that.”
