Member Update 7/13

It’s been great to see so many people in this week! We went through 2 dozen cupcakes on Member Monday this week!
Speaking of Member Monday, the next two are 7/25 and 8/8 1-2pm. 7/25 we will to a Salad Bar and 8/8 will be an ice cream social. Hope you can join us!
The HVAC grant is going up for final approval at the Selectboard meeting tomorrow night, Thursday 7/14 at 6:30pm. This is a post-compliance, pre-receiving-funds sort of thing. It REALLY helped to have so many of you in the room when we originally asked for the grant. If any of you are available to show up tomorrow night, please let me know and I’ll get you more exact timing/agenda.
Thank you shoutout to Charen who pointed out that our recycling habits have gone awry and provided a graphic to help us all sort through things. Please make sure that you are throwing valid items into the blue recycling bin under the sink in the kitchen. Paper towels, snack wrappers, coffee cups, and most food containers are not valid items.

We received a grant to cover 4 more cohorts of our 10-week business planning course from now through the Spring. If you know anyone who might be interested, please have them get in touch!
The Space On Main is a partner of the Upper Valley chapter of the Vermont Welcome Wagon. With so many new people, I figured it might be worth sharing the sign up info. The VWW connects people who want to learn more about the area with “hosts” who sign up to connect over coffee, a hike, etc. The interactions are free and a fun way to connect with folks. You can sign up as a participant and/or host here:
Hope you’re all having a great week! Let me know if you have any questions about any of this! 🙂
