|9/28-9/29||Rust Library How To Festival||Opportunity to have an educational booth - Dave and Diane spoke with with Allyson Frick at 3PM on July 23. Dave will demo his desktop CNC and Diane will make soap from 10:30-11:30am on Saturday Sept 28 in their community meeting room. There will be other demonstrations on How-to-Make but they will be by other groups/organizations. The purpose is to encourage folks to visit all parts of the library including its maker space. We asked if we could set up a static information table with examples of items made by Makersmiths and they said. They will get back to us to see if we can invite more Makersmiths members to demo a making project in the afternoon of the 28th or afternoon of the 29th (timeframe would be 1-5pm).||Diane Painter|
|09/?||Bluemont Fair||We have attended for two years, the fair organizer Lori Seely knows we don't have a tractor to pull the barrel train, but has offered a booth to exhibit/show stuff.|
|10/5||Joshua's Hands||Charity event. We can have a booth, but no sales or donations unless they go to the Joshua's Hands organization|
|10/12||Boo at the Zoo||This event supports the Arc of Northern Shenandoah Valley that provides information and services to families with children who have special needs. It is held at Wilson's Wild Animal Park west of Berryville, just off Rt 50. For the last two years we ran our barrel train as one of the activities and this gave us publicity as a non-profit that supports community events. Diane is in touch with Keith Wilson who is checking to see if the Arc will again provide a tractor for us to use, then we could bring our barrel train. We have two members (Megan and Jace) interested in helping us spruce up the cars for the event.||Diane Painter|
|10/?||SterlingFest||We should find out more information and determine if we want to participate. 10,000 people attend this events so it would be a good audience to promote Makersmiths for getting new members. Suggested by Mark M.|
|10/?||Purcellville Tag Sale||Opportunity to sell surplus items and generate funds for the space|
