Tool Library Drill Team at the Strawberry Festival

Come Join the Tool Library Drill Team at the Strawberry Festival Parade

Calling all Makerspace and Tool Library members and supporters

Join the Makerspace/Tool Library Drill Team and help make this year’s Strawberry Festival Parade entry our best one yet. We get a little bigger and a little better every year. What a great way to show your support and promote the library and makerspace. It’s loose. It’s casual. it’s FUN!

We meet this Saturday in the staging area on the highway south of town at 10:15 AM, do a little “organizing” (I use the term loosely), Parade starts at 11 and winds up by noon.We walk about 1.5 miles, periodically performing our “routine”.

If you have a rechargeable drill bring it along, if not we have some from the library. We need banner carriers as well.  Wear comfortable walking shoes and any tool / handyperson / tradesperson attire you wish. We will have some safety vests and hardhats to round out our “uniform”

I will email final directions Thursday evening after I get our entry number from the parade organizers.  Please reply with a phone number so we can communicate as needed on Saturday morning.

See you Saturday
Kevin

First Intro to Woodworking Class proves very popular

Our first woodworking classes in the Vashon High School woodshop were very well attended.  In fact, so many wanted to attend that we had to add a second session on Thursdays.  And there have been requests for additional classes in the same facility over the summer.  Here are some photos from the Thursday class on the last day.  Keep an eye open for the new classes we’ll be setting up in the near future.
