Community spaces play an important role in communities like Benito: it's a meeting place for small family events, funeral receptions, bingos, arts and crafts days, soup n' sandwich Mondays, and commercial kitchen rentals. It offers wheelchair/handicap accessibility, important in an aging and retirement community.

Work on the exterior of the hall has been completed. Now it's time to work on the ceiling, install new lighting, and upgrade the sound system. A lot of the work has been done by volunteers, and the Ladies Auxiliary continue to fundraise to cover the expenses.
