After listening to the Podcast of Heidi Kelley on KLRS/KNIA, I'm giving this 1 star based on the fact that the only way you can get your voice heard as a community member is if you're willing to pay $2,000.00 per bracket on her new fundraising scheme "Pick of the Season" she's planning to unveil at Taste of the Town in October. http://content.blubrry.com/iowaradioplus/heidi_kelley_sept_2016_for_web.mp3
I have attended many events at the Pella Opera House. The current renovations are going to give it a fresh updated look while maintaining the historical integrity of the building. I would recommend it for luncheons, weddings or performances. It is a very versatile space.
