@SpaceForce and anyone interested,
A last-minute opportunity has come up for us: WinterFest at Impression 5 in downtown Lansing. It’s this Saturday, Feb. 27, so we need to put this together quickly.
It’s an outdoor, COVID-safe event in the Impression 5 parking lot. We’ll have a 8ftx6ft table. Normally we’d do a make-and-take activity, but with COVID, that’s harder. We’ll pass out pre-made or still-in-bag blinky badges that we have used at How-To Halloween and other events. Assembling them in cold weather with COVID seems impractical. (This is contingent on us actually having enough of these in stock.)
It’s also an opportunity for us to do some fundraising, by selling T-shirts, cutting boards, and other merchandise that we have.
We’ll also try to bring Gigantris and other attractions – anything fun we can bring that’s not a COVID hazard.
We’re open to suggestions, as well.
We need some volunteers to staff the table for the day. It’s a 6-hour event, open from 10:00am to 4:00pm. Volunteers need to be there at 9:30am, and we should be packed up by 4:30pm. A few of us will be there earlier to unload and set up the big things.
We need some full-day or half-day volunteers. Impression 5 will be providing lunch and snacks for volunteers!
I’ll be there all day. If you’d like to join us, please respond here, and say whether you want to do the full day or half day. If you have ideas for the event, we’re wide open to suggestions.
Of course this is very last-minute, and we apologize for that! But if you’re itching to get out of the house for a bit and see some of your LMN friends again, this is your chance!
