Happy Friday! A lot of different things have been in progress/evolving and new members have been applying steadily as summer homes open up for the season. Here are a few updates/reminders/event updates:

a. Cookout
Important stuff first! The weather is getting nicer and I thought it might be fun to have a member cookout! Also, Andrea is moving to Boston and it would be nice to send her off! In order to find a date that works best for everyone who is interested, please reply to this Doodle Poll: https://doodle.com/poll/zmyt7aniu8zdi97v (would host in Bradford)

b. Courtesy Reminders
Please keep in mind that The Space is shared space – please use headphones/earbuds when on calls (even in phone booths), silence/mute notification sound effects, push in chairs, and clean up your space/dishes after eating. Thank you!

c. Main Street Parking Reminder
With the weather improving and streets getting busier, please try your best to park in the public lots at either end of Main Street. There is technically a 2-hour limit, which we would like to respect – especially with businesses next door who rely on in-and-out customer traffic.

d. Busy/In-Meeting Stress Balls
Another space in VT is using toy blocks for people to place on their desks when they cannot be bothered. If this would be helpful to anyone, I got a dozen colored stress balls that people can use for a no-interruptions marker.

e. ScaleHere
The Vermont Center for Emerging Technologies (VCET) today announced new partnerships with five innovation hubs to boost startups,
innovation and localized economic development throughout Vermont. The #ScaleHere platform accelerates business growth throughout the state by sharing the business resources aggregated at VCET to companies at other non-profit innovation centers
outside of the greater Burlington area. This includes discounted cloud software and access to one-on-one mentoring. Read More: https://vcet.co/vermont-innovation-hubs-launch-network-to-support-rural-entrepreneurs/
