It serves as a gathering place for pep rallies, assemblies, graduations, dances, and fundraising. It may allow the public to hold craft shows and trade shows.
Natural wood simply isn't made to handle heavy-duty foot traffic. Non-athletic shoes can scuff the surface, and a spill can cause significant damage to the finish.
