There was a very encouraging turnout last night at the meeting. I would guess around 40 people of varying backgrounds. The feasibility study that the economic development committee is undertaking is still underway, so there was not a lot of info on that front. It appears it was more of a ‘get the ball rolling’ type of meeting and to gauge public interest. I believe it will be decided to have monthly meet up for ‘geek beers’ on the first Thursday of each month, as well as possibly lunch meet up on Fridays.
Cindy and Hugh collected information sheets that the attendees filled out so I imagine they will be putting together a mailing list for future correspondence. If anyone is interested I have a Facebook page under shuswap makerspace if anyone is interested in using that as another avenue of communication/community.
