Things Going On

Hello everyone! We’re having a general meeting tonight at 7:30 PM at the space. The agenda is here. As always, we’ll be conducting business, answering newcomers’ questions about the space, and helping each other out with projects; feel free to stop on by. :-)

And as a reminder, tonight at 8 PM is Tool Tuesday, where yours truly (Andrew Mike) will be teaching people how to use a 3D printer! If you’ve ever been curious about 3D printing, tonight is the night to come by!

Finally, there’s just one week to go for our Adafruit Group Buy! If you want to buy something from Adafruit, you only have one week left to get your orders in!

Thanks for reading, and we hope to see you tonight!
