It’s official. We have our first member elected board in our emerging Non-Profit Staunton Makerspace. Please join me in welcoming our new President Eleanor Graham, VP Cody Wilmer, Secretary Aaron Louie, and Treasurer Alex Herron. Every single one of these people are exceptional. I count them each as a personal friend. There is not one of them that I don’t admire – for their respective vision, energy, creativity, and deep wisdom. But beyond them, we have a membership that transcends a need for central leadership. With people like Nelson Patterson leading our renovations and volunteers, Rick Hubbard and Kurt Rosenberger forging a dynamic woodworking studio, and more names than it makes sense to mention building capacities from jewelry crafting and metal fabrication to pottery and production quality digital fabrication. There is energy here well beyond what I can convey. You would have to see this motion to believe it. God Speed all of you. I am moved on a sea of inevitable greatness.
