The Bennett Valley Guild has been a essential part of Bennett Valley for over 144 years. Most people know that the Bennett Valley Guild Hall is an historical building built in 1873. What people may not know is that the Bennett Valley Guild is an active organization that continues to hold monthly meetings. Even though the Guild is an organization that operates under the auspices of the California Guild, the members and officers can decide what programs and activities they would like to do.
The last couple of years the Bennett Valley Guild has partnered with the Bennett Valley Community Association (BVCA), offering the hall for meetings and informative speakers. We have also co-sponsored the Guild's annual June barbecue with the BVCA, raising funds for the Bennett Valley Guild Hall’s upkeep and maintenance, especially important for an older building. At the same time, we are also raising funds for the Bennett Valley Emergency Preparedness (BVEP) funds and the BVEP emergency shelter now located at the Guild.
