A few updates for you:
a. Colatina Game Night Mon Aug 19 5:30pm
I’ve been hosting a 3rd Monday Game Night for years now at the Colatina Exit (upstairs). Pop over after work if you want to join in. Starts at 5:30pm, but you can show up whenever. We always have plenty of games to share and you can order food and drink from the bar.
b. SOM Member TGIF Pizza Party Fri Aug 30 12:00pm
Take a break from your screen and let’s have lunch together. SOM will order pizza! Join in on the last Fridays of the month!
c. SOM Member Thirsty Thursday Happy Hour 4pm
We started to do every 3rd Thursday of the month, but then schedules got in the way. If you’re able to take a break from your screen join in for a BYO beverage happy hour – any Thursday afternoon.
d. Printer Is On Its Way!
By the end of the month, we’ll have a printer setup for members to use. Thank you for your patience! If you see Erin Odell of Odell Insurance, thank her for her donation toward purchase of a setup.
e. Additional Meeting Rooms
The wellness room is going to be converted into two hourly-available meeting rooms. We’ll have one by Sept 1 and another one as soon as our contractor can get an extra door in. $15/hr for nonmembers and $5/hr for members. I’m also working on trying to fund several soundproof booths that a space in Burlington has been loving.
f. General Info / Story
Several of you have asked how The Space came to be. I try to keep the Press & Media Kit page updated which has most of the info: https://thespaceonmain.org/kit (of course I’d be happy to chat with any of you as well).
g. SOM Board Members
We had a huge shift in board members from our starter board to next phase. Two of your coworkers, Brynn and Jon, are directors. We have at least one director visiting from Seattle this weekend. If you’d like to read more about the team, that’s available here: https://thespaceonmain.org/team
h. Volunteer Opportunities
Paul asked about volunteer opportunities in the area. I am going to put together a resource page for reference in case that would be helpful information. Coming soon!
I think that’s it for now! Hope you have a great weekend! 🙂
