On Saturday as the sunset and evening dusk turned to night not only did the moon rise over LaFayette, but a new beginning started as well. Under the clear spring night the doors opened to LaFayette’s newest business venture. Diane’s Castle became LaFayettes new event center and had not just the stars in the sky shining above, but also many of LaFayette’s local celebrities turn out to welcome the newest business venture to LaFayette.
Diane’s Castle is located on County Road 267. The new event center is the entrepreneurial innovation of Monica Shaw. The event center offers space for a wide variety of events in the LaFayette and Chambers County area. The center hopes to host weddings, receptions, birthday parties, anniversary events, family reunions, office and business parties, and so much more.
The power of the new facility and its impact on LaFayette was apparent at the open house event Saturday night. Local celebrities and dignitaries including members of the local government found their way to the meet and greet. The open house offered not only a mingle session, but also the opportunity to enjoy food while listening to soft music echoing through the hall while candles offered a natural illumination to the facility as dimly lit chandeliers offered a unique illumination to the mood of the room
Monica Shaw who is the owner of the new facility says, “I see this a positive facility to bring together different services and having a positive influence on the young people of the community, it will provide an opportunity to get them off the couch and get young people out of the streets”. In addition to social events the new facility has ambitions to give back to the community through events such as clothing drives, mentoring services, movie nights and general community well-being events.
While Saturday was the official opening for Diane’s Castle the center will host its first major community event this Saturday April 9th. Starting at 9:00 p.m. Diane’s Castle will host Old Skool Night. The atmosphere of the event is one in which attendees will get to dress up in clothing and attire from their favorite decade no matter when that is the 1920’s or 1970’s. The cost of the event is $7.00 and is open to those age 21 and over.
Monica Shaw says she is very excited and really looking forward to the first event this weekend. Diane’s Castle is located at 3070 County Road 267 LaFayette and can be reached by email or phone at firstname.lastname@example.org or (678)879-5407. Diane’s Castle is now open and LaFayette’s newest business venture and judging from the open house it looks like a bright future is in store for the facility.
