The Arlington Community Room & Reception Center

Due to COVID-19 restrictions and following CDC Guidelines, the Arlington Community Room & Reception Center is currently not available for Family Gatherings and/or Community Use.  Please check back for updates.

Since our primary consideration is to provide extraordinary and convenient experiences for those we serve, one of the most convenient features we offer is our on-site multi-purpose Reception Center.

The Reception Center’s primary function is as a gathering place for families before or after funeral and/or committal services.  It is customary for the family of the deceased to host a gathering for those who have attended the funeral, graveside committal or memorial service. The purpose of these gatherings is to share memories of the deceased, to add comfort to the mourning family and to provide hospitality to those who may have traveled some distance to attend the funeral.

While these gatherings may take place at the home, the Reception Center offers a convenient alternative that comfortably accommodates groups of various sizes. Rather than planning for such a gathering at the home with all of the related details, the family can instead utilize the Reception Center including options for catering services.  Arlington’s staff assumes responsibility for all of the arrangements and details, all for a modest fee.  Those interested in this service should contact the Administrative Center at (513) 521-7003 between the hours 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM, Monday thru Friday and 8:00 AM – 2:00 PM on Saturdays or email

The Reception Center is also available for other civic or social meetings or functions.

Art At Arlington

Just as we utilize our grounds for summer concerts and numerous other activities for the living, we enjoy utilizing our interior space for the benefit of those who visit our Community Room and Reception Center.

Throughout the year, we open our walls to three or four local artists who use this venue to exhibit their talents. The result is an interesting display of colors and perspectives that is available for viewing for any visitor to our Administration Center or our Reception Center.  Viewing is open 9:00 – 4:30, Monday through Friday and 9:00 through 12:00 noon on Saturdays.
