Future Forge Makerspace has been busy busy busy! Let's give you a quick update on what's been going on since the move!
In May, we began our annual reopening of the Makers Market in the Main Street Plaza downtown. We started off with a BANG! Hosting Give Grandly's in person event on May 7th, joining Blues Festival on May 28th, and hosting CLAY festival on July 16th.
In June, we hosted our first Open House, one of the many we plan to do throughout the year which was a great success! It was a great turn out and we had so many wonderful folks stop in to join us for tours and demonstrations.
We have received a few grants here and there over the last few months with many thanks to give to the community. Notably, we received the 30 Something Grant! This grant for $30,000 was issued to our Makerspace to purchase the lot of land next door to begin construction on what will be known as the Maker's Playground!
