Breda Legion Hall (Fred F. & Norman J. Bruning American Legion Post #607)

Legion Hall

In 2012, the Breda Legion acquired the former Zeke's Restaurant building from the City of Breda. After gutting the building, adding a new roof and installing a new heating and cooling system, the Legion broke down walls to connect the two structures as one. The newly expanded Legion now has increased its space by 50% and seating capacity by almost 75%. The result is a facility with 7,500 square feet and ability to seat 530. The "new space" provided the Breda Legion with a handicap-accessible entrance and handicap-accessible restrooms. Additionally, there is a larger bar, bigger catering staging room and increased restrooms. Rental for the entire facility is $250. Or, persons can rent one half of the building for $125. The "original half" seats 330, while the "new half" seats 200. Both sides feature bar areas. Beautiful, large-scale pocket wooden doors can separate the two sides if needed.

When utilizing the facility, the rental fee entitles you to staffed bartenders for the duration of your event. There are no restrictions on catering options. However, when renting, individuals are not allowed to cover the flag display cases at any time. To make a reservation, call Arnie Tiefenthaler at 712-830-8762.

Former St. Bernard School building

Mary Nieland Center

In 2006, thanks to a generous donation from Mary Nieland's estate, the former dining room at the St. Bernard school was remodeled into a fellowship hall dedicated as the Mary Nieland Center. The area features 10 large round tables, with 8 chairs comfortably fitting around each table. Rental of the center includes access to a full commercial kitchen - where for many years school lunches were prepared. The kitchen features large refrigerators and abundant counter, prep and wash space. When not used for Parish functions, the center is well suited for family gatherings, rehearsal suppers or club meetings. Restroom access is available.

Rental of the space is $75 for St. Bernard Parish members and $100 for persons who are not members of St. Bernard. To make a reservation, call 712-673-2582.
